Outstanding combination specimen from the famous Silverton mining area in Colorado. The sharp, lustrous Rhodochrosite rhombs reach about 4 mm in size, and along with sparkly, 3 mm spheres of Sphalerite, they all rest on a matrix of micro Quartz crystals. The quality, combination, and aesthetics are excellent, as you can see from the photos. Classic, and pretty!
