Cabinet, 12.6 x 5.8 x 1.6 cm
Sunnyside Mine (American Tunnel; Mogul Mine; Washington Mine; Belle Creole; Gold Prince; Brenneman Mine; Sunnyside Mine Group), Howardsville, Silverton District, San Juan Co., Colo
Rhodonite specimens from the Sunnyside Mine of Colorado are rare and are very rarely available. This very showy polished cabinet slab features sparkling, sugary, rose-red rhodonite with small, parallel veins of contrasting sulfides/oxides. Small angled fractures have dispersed the sulfides/oxides into interesting muted patterns in the rhodonite. Older, classic material from the Robert Fender Collection. Unusually rich and well colored.
