Sunnyside Mine (American Tunnel; Mogul Mine; Washington Mine; Belle Creole; Gold Prince; Brenneman Mine; Sunnyside Mine Group), Howardsville, Silverton District, San Juan Co., Colo
Cabinet, 12.6 x 5.8 x 1.6 cm
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.
