A very large and beautiful piece that features a prominent vein of Rhodochrosite in a matrix of Quartz, Silver Tetrahedrite, Galena and Chalcopyrite. The Rhodochrosite is translucent, the color is a classic reddish-pink and the rhombohedral cleavage can be clearly seen as result of the extraction process. The contrast and luster are both excellent, and clearly delineate the vein of Rhodochrosite from the adjoining matrix. A great specimen of Rhodochrosite for a great price!
