Miniature, 3.6 x 3.0 x 2.4 cm
Huallapon Mine, Pasto Bueno, Peru
Ex. Herb Obodda
A classic, lustrous, rose-red Rhodochrosite rhomb from the famous early 1980s finds at the Huayllapon Mine, Pasto Bueno, Peru. This striking, stepped rhomb has the typically gemmy, cherry-red, edge rinds and is accented with Quartz and a few small fluorite crystals around the bottom. Gorgeous. Contacted only on a small bit of the back, it is otherwise complete all around. A true classic, as very few of these ever existed to begin with, and they almost never become available nowadays. This pocket is still distinctive today, 20 years later.
