Item Description

A classic specimen of the most famous Rhodochrosites in the world. The Sweet Home Mine is one of the most iconic localities extant due to its production of the finest quality red rhombic Rhodochrosite out there. This piece is from the early mining done by Collector's Edge (from the Clay Pocket - specimen #SH1713) featuring a 2.7 cm, predominant, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, red rhomb of Rhodochrosite associated with zoned Fluorites showing colorless exteriors and purple "cores", plus minor Quartz and sulfides (Sphalerite, Tetrahedrite and Chalcopyrite). The piece is in great shape overall, and it's so hard to find solitary isolated rhombs like! I don't have to tell you that the value of these specimens keeps rising, and pieces like this are becoming harder to find on the market. Valued at $2,500 in the inventory
