Description

This super miniature sized specimen features a superbly defined, pink coloured, rhombohedral crystal of Rhodochrosite, contrastful set in the center of cream-white, glistening Quartz matrix. The Rhodochrosite itself is sharp edged, highly lustrous and so far I can see pristine all around. The bottom and one side of the specimen are sawn. In any case a super specimen from a classic locality of Colorado. Hard to come by nowadays.
