Item Description

Lustrous, sharp, pretty pastel-pink, rhodochrosite rhombs cover the front on this showy and excellent two-sided crust from 2005-2006 finds in Peru. The largest rhomb is 2.0 cm. The backside is comprised of smaller, light salmon-pink, flattened rhombs. Essentially pristine. Highly representative two-sided material from this locale. Ex Sam Cooper Collection.
