Item Description

Six intergrown, rich rose-red, lustrous, translucent, tabular rhodochrosite rhombs form a sculptural, triganular enclosure atop the matrix on this aesthetic, excellent and pristine 360-degree small cabinet from the well-known finds at this famous Chinese locale. The scattered sprays of quartz points are super accessories to this fine combination from the W.S. Logan Rhodochrosite Collection X96-2. Quality specimens from the recent finds quickly disappeared from the market and are seldom seen today. Valued by Dr. Logan at $600 at the time and probably worth more like double that, today. Old material
