Miniature, 4.4 x 3.7 x 1.7 cm
Sweet Home Mine (Home Sweet Home Mine), Mount Bross, Alma District, Park Co., Colorado, USA
A beautifully gemmy and lustrous, 1.4 cm, rose-red rhodochrosite rhomb aesthetically set in massive tennantite matrix, which is flanked by two, lustrous, sharp, iridescent, bornite-coated tennantite crystals. This is a cute, highly representative rhodo on sulfide matrix from this most famous and now-closed mine.
