6.5 x 4 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
A very pretty and balanced arrange ment of compound Rhodochrosite rhombs sitting on a matrix of drusy quartzon a shard of Dolomitic country rock. Top color for a Chinese rhodo and quite fine from anyplace! The largest rhomb is 2 CM and all are sharp and translucent. This glows with any backlighting but looks fine without .
