Cabinet, 12.6 x 10.3 x 4.7 cm
Sweet Home Mine (Home Sweet Home Mine), Mount Bross, Alma District, Park Co., Colorado, USA
Richard Kosnar mined the Sweet Home for a few years during the late 1970's and managed to collect some excellent Rhodochrosite specimens. This piece is from one of the last pockets that Rich opened before he was done at the mine. The Rhodochrosite crystals on this specimen have nice pink-red color with decent gemminess. The largest Rhodochrosite measures 1.1 cm across. They are sitting atop a mix of black, lustrous Tetrahedrite and Quartz crystal matrix with minor associated Pyrite. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
