Miniature, 3.8 x 3.3 x 2.9 cm
Wuzhou, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
This is a rare piece - few matrix specimens were recovered, it seems. This one has fat disc-shaped crystals to 2.3 cm on matrix. They have a thin white coating in some places, that may come off in acid if one wants to try, but I like the softened look of it and the pink hue the thin white coating casts in combination with the red rhodo. Its unusual! Cheaper than it might be because it has minor damage to the left edge of the front-middle crystal.
