Rhodonite on Calcite
Thumbnail, 2.5 x 2.0 x 1.3 cm
Franklin Mine, Sussex County, New Jersey, USA
Really good, unusually sharp, translucent crystals of classic Franklin rhodonite, embedded in contrasting matrix. This is a great thumbnail example - most specimens are big and clunky in comparison and good thumbs are especially hard to obtain. Beyond that, though, these crystals are very fine.
