||Rhodochrosite with Fluorite, Quartz &Pyrite
Wudong mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh
5.5 X 3.6 CM (miniature)
A superb Chinese Rhodo that could pass for a Sweethome piece! Top cherry red color, fine glassy lustre, large sharp rhombs to 2.4CM size and a bit of purple Fluorite for color contrast! Super showy with brilliant color and in remarkable condition, this is simply exceptional. Minimal matrix on the reverse side - this is nearly all Rhodochrosite so it can be backlit for an extra red glow. The photos here are NOT backlit, to give a true idea of the quality and color on this.
