Alabandite With Rhodochrosite
Miniature, 3.4 x 3.1 x 2.8 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
Two very sharp crystals to 1.3 cm, perched on alabandite and accented by unusual striated pink rhodochrosite crystals. Fine example for this new find, which is settign a world's new standard for the species without being crazy in price. A superb display quality miniature, anyhow, beyond its rarity
