Two gemmy, lightly frosted, light cherry-red rhodochrosite rhombs to 1.8 cm, on the diagonal, are nicely placed on a sculptural LARGE CABINET plate covered with a forest of quartz needles. The plate is further accented by scatterings of tetrahedrite and a couple of pyritohedrons. This showy and excellent specimen is from the 1996 Hedgehog Pocket.
