Rhodochrosite, Sphalerite
Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
Toenail, 3.0 x 2.0 x 1.9 cm
A showy and excellent cluster of frosted, gemmy, cherry-red rhodochrosite scalenohedrons on matrix and very nicely complimented by a sharp, isolated sphalerite crystal and a bit of white calcite. Highly representative of the species and famous locality, even with one broken crystal. Nearly all of the crystals are well-terminated.
