While Sweet Home Mine is the most famous rhodochrosite locality in Colorado, there are numerous other rhodochrosite localities in the state that historically produced a variety of distinctly different styles. This specimen is from one such locality, Sunnyside Mine, and features wonderful bladed crystals form rosettes that up to 1.5cm across of pastel pink rhodochrosite on a gemmy white quartz matrix. Ex Gary Weaver collection. Gary amassed a collection of over 2000 specimens from Mexico, Peru, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. A very unusual and beautiful specimen with a hot pink color. Specimens like this can sometimes be found as old Colorado collections are receycled, but actually are much more uncommon than Sweet Home Mine pieces. Values on a piece like this can easily run from $500-1000 out of state to over $1000 when buying from in-state specialists in the historic pieces.
