Description

This is a super classic and also aesthetic specimen of Rhodochrosite from the famous Rothenberg Mine located near Oberneisen and about 10 km S of Limburg an der Lahn. This ultrafine specimen features excellent defined, partially doubly terminated, red-brown scalenohedrons of Rhodochrosite richly lining a large vug. The entire vug is completely coated with tiny, almost gemmy Quartz crystals what gives the whole surface a superb glistening look and makes the piece more dramatic. This is a super German oldtimer in splendid condition with only minor imperfection at the periphery, hard to see. This great piece comes with a high-quality, fitting acrylic base.
