Rhodochrosite with Polylithonite, Aegerine etc
Poudrette Quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire
Quebec, Canada
2.7 x 2.6 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $475
Dec 2018

A neat variation of classic form from Mt St Hillaire, the flattened triangular Rhodochrosite Rhomb with some extra faces. This specimen here also has several tiny "normal" Rhodo rhombs. Lots of micro crystals on some faces and edges, including Polylithonite. In perfect condition by naked eye, only at 30X magnification are some rough spots found as is a secondary coating in a few spots. Displays well from most any angle, this is good looking on either side. An attractive large thumbnail.
