Rhodizite
Mahalza, Betafo District, Vakinankaratra
Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
6 x 5.1 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Dec 2018

A well-exposed Rhodizite crystal stands on a complex Pegmatitic matrix. The Rhodizite has some gemmy areas and is fairly lustrous, this is a very large sized crystal at 2.8 CM in diameter. Close exam shows a crack and chipping mostly on the backside of the Rhodizite. Still for the size of this crystal it is in quite good condition which is uncommon. Ex. William Hladysz collection and Carter Rich, from the great find over 15 years ago, these were by far the worlds best crystals of this quite rare mineral.
