Miniature, 4.8 x 3.3 x 2.9 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A cherry-red, robust cluster of rhodonite, very lustrous, that is geometrically complex on several subfaces leading up to the termination. The termination is fat and lustrous, unusually sloped and broad. It has some small damage to the righthand side were you to look head-on from above rather than as shown here. The left side is complete as you can see, and the right side face is probably contacted. Howevre, it still displays very impressively and is a lot of color, and a wide frontal surface with a good termination view at this angle, for the price - again, unprecedented by previous standards.
