Rhodochrosite on Quartz
Pasto Bueno, Pampas, Pallasca Province
4 x 2.1 x 1.6 (miniature)
Super cute small miniature of a single terminated Quartz crystal decorated with red-pink Rhodochrosite crystals. The Rhodos are in the rhomb form, fairly sharp with some stepped edges, complete on all sides and undamaged. From the classic finds at Pasto Bueno (Peru), this is an nicely esthetic specimen of a style not seen in a long time.
