Rhodochrosite With Quartz
Miniature, 5.1 x 5.1 x 2.0 cm
Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado, USA

This gorgeous, well-balanced miniature features large and gemmy crystals to an inch, perched nicely on matrix. The large crystal has GLASSY luster and is super-translucent, with a rich cherry color! It is somewhat better in person as it was photographed at a slightly odd angle to get everything to show up better and lit well. It has no repairs. This is one of the better rhodo mini's I have seen on the market recently. They are REALLY drying up fast. I sell very few not because I do not have them, but because I tend to stash them. These are like money in the bank, going up 20% per year or MORE recently. These are the fastest-appreciating items in the mineral business
