Rhodochrosite on Quartz with Sphalerite etc
Lame (Lamo) Zn-CU deposit, Dachang, Nandan, Hechi Prefecture
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
10 x 8.7 x 7.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


A very esthetic specimen ex. Shields Flynn Collection that presents several disk-like sharp Rhodo crystals (up to 2.6 CM) nicely perched on large quartz prisms. This was from the one time find at Lamo Mine (Quanxi, China)in 2003. Very good contrast and color, the Rhodos are in fine condition as are most of the quartz crystals (only one has some tip bruising). Later finds some 20 KM from this mine produced fine Rhodochrosite which became quite famous but none with this look. This piece was sourced by Bert Ottens and is excellent for this find.
