Chiurucu Mine (Chiurucu prospect), Dos de Mayo Province, Huanuco Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 5.0 x 4.0 cm
Blades of deep pink cover the display face of this rich Peruvian rhodonite, with a bit of gray matrix showing above for contrast. The crystals have formed on a bed of massive rhodonite, so even though there is a bit of damage, it is hard to distinguish the incomplete crystals from the massive rhodonite they sit on. Mined in 1998. 5.5 x 5 x 4 cm
