    Rhodochrosite
    Good Luck Pocket, Main Stope
    Home Sweet Home Mine, Alma
    Colorado, USA

    A large plate of superb Rhodochrosite crystals goes down easily. When these Rhodochrosites hit the market in 1992 they shook up the mineral collecting community as they opened collectors eyes to new and incredible specimens. This outstanding offering consists of over a dozen bright red, gemmy rhombohedral crystals atop a bed of Quartz needles and lustrous Tetrahedrite crystals. Yielding from the quintessential American locality, this specimen is hard to pass up. These well-formed crystals present with such appeal and have been professionally cleaned for more impact. The largest crystal measures 2 inches (5.08 cm). There are a few areas of contact damage, but overall this specimen is in great condition. Examples like this are few and far between, act now!
    Overall Measurements: 5.47 x 4.26 x 1.54 inches (13.90 x 10.83 x 3.90 cm)

    Provenance: The Property from an East Coast Collection

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
