||Rhodochrosite and Sphalerite with Pyrite
Eagle Mine, Gilman District, Eagle Co.
Colorado, United States
11.5 x 9.3 CM (cabinet)
A Colorado classic, the Eagle mine has provided many fine specimens over the years. This is a very good Rhodo with individual sharp rhombs to 2 CM covering most of the surface. Scattered Sphalerites on the display side (and many more on the reverse side) add extra sparkle. It is rare to find examples this good from the location. This old timer is in exceptional condition, all the main rhombs are perfect. A great addition for a Colorado collection or a rhodochrosite suite.
