A beautiful piece that features a fragment of a vein of Rhodochrosite on 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!
