Rhodochrosite- Sharp Rhombs with Quartz, Pyrite and Calcite
Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh Pref.
Guangxi Autonomous Region, China
7.2 x 6 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $2600
Pre Holiday 2017

Intense red color and fine translucent Rhombs from early finds at the Wudong (Wutong) mine. This is one of the few pieces that can match the color and style of some good Sweet Home Mine specimens. Choice and in great condition as seen. The rhombs are just over 2.5 CM (an inch) and very esthetic in their placement. The Pyrite adds a golden sparkle and the overall display is very eyecatching. Later finds produced more pale red and flatter crystals. A less expensive alternative to a similar Colorado specimen but still a fine Rhodo!
