Cabinet, 10.1 x 9.5 x 6.0 cm
Morro da Mina Mine, Conselheiro Lafaiete (old Queluz de Minas), Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Rhodonite has been coming out of this old manganese mine for 3 years now in a trickle of specimen. Rarely, though, do they come on matrix. This large colorful plate features dozens of crystals to 1.25 cm. Most are broken, but some are not, and overall it is a nice field of color and a good representative study specimen from this find.
