Thumbnail, 2.4 x 0.5 x 0.5 cm
Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico
Ex. Stretch Young
This is a superb example of a gemmy, lustrous, red, scalenohedral rhodochrosite crystal - and NOT from South Africa though it superficially looks it! This is a rare treasure for ma very small find in Santa Eulalia (i am told in the late 1970s). It is a supremely good thumbnail with juicy color and a sharp termination coming to a gemmy, jeweled point. It is also doubly terminated, even though the lower one appears to be jagged.
