Rhodochrosite ps. Calcite
Wessels Mine, North Cape Prov., South Africa
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm
Ex. William Logan
Lovely scalenohedrons of pastel pink rhodochrosite are aesthetically emplaced on matrix. The lustrous and translucent crystals, including one at 6.4 cm in length, are colored a rich pink hue. It has a special shape, both sharp and soft at the same time, and looks more like a painting than a crystal, in the photos. A lovely and elegant specimen, among the best of this style. Ex. Marshall Sussman and John Schneider collections.
