Rhodochrosite -Scalenohedral crystals on Quartz
stock #18.1-172
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
4.7 x 3.8 x 4.4 CM (miniature)
price: $1550
Spring update

Dramatic miniature with brilliant deep red gemmy Scaleneohedral Rhodos in perfect condition. An outstanding Uchucchacua piece with top luster and form. No chips, dings or cleaves even under strong magnification, which is very rare. Older specimen that is much better in person, this may remind you of a fine Wessels mine specimen. A very choice, competition grade miniature.
Rhodochrosite- gemmy crystals on Sulphide finger
stock #17.1-136
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
4.5 x 2.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $2950
Spring 2017

As fine as it can get! Perfect crystals of gem clear Rhodochrosite studding a slender finger of Sulphide matrix which gives great contrast. Elegant crystal arrangement with top color and luster, simply a top miniature specimen that is 360 degrees viewable. The terminations of the Rhodos are all quite perfect too, even under strong magnification. Clearly a fine competition grade miniature. Ex M. Budil, F Gaboury, from a find at Uchucchacua, Peru in 1999. It is incredible that even with this many crystals the specimen is still perfect and undamaged.
Rhodochrosite -Scalenohedral gem crystal
stock #16.1-199
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
2.5 x 1.2 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $475
Spring 2017

A choice single scalenohedral Rhodo crystal with a small bit of matrix adhering to the back and bottom. Super bright color and sharp, glassy prism faces. The lower termination has some contacts on the back side but otherwise this is in super fine condition and the front side displays very clean as seen. An excellent Peruvian thumbnail that looks a bit like a South African. Choice.
Rhodochrosite on Fluorite with Goethite
stock #A-19-074
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
6.3 x 3.6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Winter 2016-17

A choice small Rhodo specimen with nice color and in fine condition. The matrix is a dark Goethite that is covered with tiny colorless Fluorite crystals that look black due to the matrix showing through. The Rhodos are mostly scalenohedral with truncated tips some of them showing some "wheat sheaf" habit. Good coverage as well makes this a nice display piece.
Silver with Rhodochrosite
stock #8.1-278
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province
Lima Department, Peru
5.6 x 4.2 x 4.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1180


From a find about 20 years ago, this is a very striking example of well formed Silver growing from a Quartz and Rhodochrosite vug. Super esthetic, undamaged and with excellent contrast this is a very fine Silver example. Several wires over 2 CM long and relatively thick are complexly crystallized. One single sharply terminated Silver crystal is protruding 9mm from the quartz with spearlike form. The Rhodos are a series of stacked tiny rhombohedra and add a further contrast and a very special association. An old Dave Bunk label has a 1500.00 price tag on it, it is a fine specimen.
