With the mine now closed, good to great rhodos are getting scarcer and more expensive. This particular specimen features crystals to 1.2 cm across which are lustrous, translucent, and a deep, rich, pink color. As is common with soft minerals, there are minor abrasions to a few crystals. This does not diminish the overall appearance of the specimen. I sell so few of them now for several reasons, the chief among them being that few of the quality I woul dhave settled for in the old days are available now, and I will not lower my standards to sell what IS generally avbailable....now, good ones come only in old collections receycling or from old dealer stashes that are getting smaller and smaller.
