RM1670   Rhodochrosite

Potosí mine, Aquiles Serdán, Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, México

Very rich specimen of rhodo, formed by several gemmy, rose-red elongated rhombohedrons covering the matrix on this fine, fine quality sample from the famous 1970s and 1980s finds at Santa Eulalia. Observed under magnification we can see that elongated faces are semidull and terminal rhombohedrons are brilliant and transparent. Color is really good. Not easy to find in the market specimens with this quality.

Size: 6.8 x 5.6 x 3.8 cm.
Main crystal: 5 x 1 mm
