Franklin Mine, Franklin, Franklin Mining District, Sussex Co., New Jersey, USA
Cabinet, 10.0 x 9.0 x 7.0 cm
A colorful, large, and rich specimen of the classic Franklin rhodonite! This one is particularly desirable because the crystals, to 3 cm in size, are lustrous and have good color. These were not etched out with acid, as many specimens were (this dulls them and slightly etches the crystals). Although some crystals here have damage, the major ones are intact and well-displayed. I chose not to remove the damaged ones because they add color to the specimen and with something this large and old, don't really detract in this case. 10 x 9 x 7 cm
