Rhodochrosite ps. Calcite
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm
Wessels Mine, North Cape Prov., South Africa
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.
