Ushkatan III, Atasu-Karazhal-Zhayrem Area, Kazakhstan
There is only one word to describe this rosy specimen and that word is: Bubbly. The deep red, lustrous surface is a riot of small rounded forms. Little is known about this deposit other than that it infrequently produces a gem like this. From the front the Rhodochrosite seems to cover virtually the entire piece. From the rear, it can be seen that the coating just barely makes it over the top. The rear exposes parts of the gray/black country rock where the specimen was attached to the wall of a fissure. This fine specimen dates to the 1980's and is considered to be one of the largest from this unusual deposit. 5 ½ x 2 ¾ x 2 inches thick.
Estimate: $2,000 - $2,500.
