Rhodochrosite - classic scalenohedral crystals
N Chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
1.7 x 1 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2022

A small but brilliant red thumbnail of gemmy Rhodochrosite from the N'Chwaning Mine (South Africa). This cluster of crystals has several perfect, complete terminations but there is some cleaving as well seen from one side. Despite many efforts to find more of this quality at the mines, nothing like these has been recovered for many years. These are highly sought after and larger examples are often priced in the mid 4 to 5 figures. This is a small but bright piece at a reasonable cost.
