Mt. St. Hilaire, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.9 x 2.9 cm
Ex. Ernest Schlichter

These pseudotriangular rhodochrosite crystals are extremely rare, and most came from one pocket in the 1980s here that was collected by Ernie Schichter and friends. This miniautre is from his collection, and features a "triangular" rhodo perched up on matrix, for a fine display. The sharply twinned crystal, measuring 3.9 cm in length, is lustrous and translucent. Smaller rhodos sit at the base of the large crystal. A superb locality piece, seldom seen for sale.
