A fine, large, lustrous and translucent, doubly terminated, rose red crystal of rhodonite, measuring 5 cm in length has smaller rhodonite crystals attached as well as a rounded, lustrous black franklinite, measuring 1.7 cm in length. Contact to a smaller rhodonite crystal does little to diminish the quality and rarity of this fine old piece. Ex. Robert Trimingham collection, obtained from the well known collector with a great eye in SF area, Paul Patchick, in 1971. The color and nice luster are notable here.
