Rhodonite
Miniature, 5.4 x 3.0 x 1.8 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
SOLD
This is a robust, thick, composite cluster with fat crystals of a pure cherry red color. They are all translucent, and when backlit this positively glows. Even in normal lighting, it is translucent at edges. The crystal is complete and fully terminated all around except for very minor edge wear on the left side edge only - not seen in any case from the front display. Seldom could you see anything comprable from Broken Hill, where slender crystals are more common than robust pieces with the good color like this.
