Rhodochrosite and Quartz
Wutong Mine, Cangwu Co., Wuzhou Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Thumbnail, 2.7 x 2.3 x 2.1 cm
Ex. William Logan

A fine, beautifully balanced cluster of pink, flattened Rhodochrosite crystals from the well-known Wutong Mine in China. The arrangement of the crystals is almost floral, and the Quartz crystal stands in front like a sentinal. This thumbnail is an excellent scale model of many of Wutong's great, large classics. Undamaged and with good views from all sides, the aesthetics are choice. Better in person. From the collection of W.S. Logan, and includes one of his superb labels.
