RM2829   Rhodochrosite

Capillitas mines, Capillitas, Andalgalá, Catamarca, Argentina

Very good sized specimen of rhodochrosite from this classic Argentine locality. In the polished part we can enjoy the characteristic bands, with good color. And the "natural" part tells us that it belongs from a vein. It has a handwritten label attached on the sample and due to its appearance it was a very old piece.


Size: 9.5 x 6 c 4.5 cm
Found in ±1950.
