Item #A2

Sweet specimen featuring rhombs of cherry-red Rhodochrosite with Pyrite and Quartz on Tetrahedrite matrix!

reasonable price. The main rhomb is completely transparent with gemmy interiors of glowing red. It measures

crystals are a nice touch and contrast well with the lustrous Tetrahedrite and white Quartz crystals. This is
one of the better Rhodo miniatures I've seen in a while with a quality rhomb and no detractions to speak of.

RARE and superb combination piece of Calcite on Goethite on Hematite!

action from glacial melt. The recesses are patinaed with a Malachite green. Makes for a great display.
