This specimen is a classic old mid-1990's-era rhodo, from Peru. Although many came out at the time, few had any aesthetics to speak of. This style of Rhodochrosite with slightly curving rhombohedra and a nice red-pink color, is unique to the mine. Most specimens also had damage, or clunky matrix. Overall, this is a very aesthetic example from the old find. From the Tom Hall collection. Joe Budd photos.
