Item Description

A huge, shockingly complete and pristine, 3-dimensional specimen of rhodonite from a famous find in 1998. The style of small, densely packed blades is unique to that occurrence, to this day. It is rather large at 1095 grams, and features sharp lathelike bladed crystals to 6mm. A LOT of pink color for the $$$ in a case, I think. Valued $2000-2500
