RM2257   Rhodochrosite with quartz

Animas Mining District, Silverton, San Juan Co., Colorado, United States of America

Excellent specimen of rhodochrosite from this classic American locality from where not many specimens are available, unless they appear in former collections. This piece entered the Joan Astor collection in 1976 and was acquired from Joan Montal, a well-known old dealer from Vilafranca del Penedés (Barcelona). Several rhombohedral rhodo crystals, very well defined, with a very aesthetic pink color. With a globular aggregate of a second generation of rhodo. It stands out on the matrix of quartz crystals. A unique piece.

Size: 5 x 4 x 3 cm.
Found in 1970's.

Col. Joan Astor.
