Ex. William Logan

Beautiful, narrow cluster of very fine Rhodochrosite crystals from the well-known Hotazel Mine. The gemminess of these Rhodos is outstanding, as is the color and luster. With only minor wear at the tips, the aesthetics of this 'flower bud' make it a first-rate thumbnail. Formerly in the collection of W.S. Logan. From the heyday and most famous finds here, around 1980.
