Miniature, 3.7 x 2.2 x 0.9 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A beautiful crystal from the recent finds at this locality in Brazil, with glowing red color and a good front display face. It has some edge wear atop, and is incomplete on the right side, but it is nevertheless a really large and showy crystal for the price. these are, historically, very rare in such size. I have sene some of thee labeled pyroxmangite, although others are labeled as rhodonite.
