MIN#R-2 NEW!

Sweet specimen featuring rhombs of cherry-red Rhodochrosite with Pyrite and Quartz on Tetrahedrite matrix!
This is a beautiful miniature sized Sweet Home Rhodo specimen which has a lot of mineral bang for its very
reasonable price. The main rhomb is completely transparent with gemmy interiors of glowing red. It measures
1.5 cm in size and is accompanied by over half a dozen Rhodo rhombs of various size. The golden Pyrite
crystals are a nice touch and contrast well with the lustrous Tetrahedrite and white Quartz crystals. This is
one of the better Rhodo miniatures I've seen in a while with a quality rhomb and no detractions to speak of.

Very fine specimen featuring reddish-pink rhombs of Rhodochrosite atop micro-Quartz crystals!
This is one of the finest Sunnyside Rhododchrosite specimens that I've seen in years and while they
do appear in the marketplace from time to time, they are rarely of this quality and depth of color.
The rhombs are sharp, measuring to 1.2 cm in size, and they beautifully cover the snowy-white Quartz.
This is a specimen that will both attract your eye with color and dazzle with sparkling Quartz brilliance.

MIN#R-4 NEW!

VERY RARE! Lovely specimen featuring a combination of Amethyst crystals with Rhodochrosite!
This is a very rare specimen from a small, obscure find at the Broken Hill Mine in Australia. Only a handful
of these amazing specimens were found and very few were of quality like this one due to the restrictive nature
of the small pocket. Most were damaged or matrix contacted. This specimen features pinkish crystalline balls of
Rhodochrosite alongside numerous, well formed and terminated Amethyst Quartz crystals. In fine condition.
From the North Mine, Broken Hill, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia.
Measures 6.2 cm by 4.7 cm by 2.8 cm in total size.

Unique specimen featuring a Rhodochrosite crystal perched high atop a Quartz lined matrix vug!

crystal is the large, upright Rhodochrosite which has pseudomorphed a scalenohedral Calcite. It measures 3.5 cm
in size and sits atop a surface of small Quartz crystals. The Quartz also lined the interior of the matrix vug and
there are two more Rhodochrosite pseudos inside the vug. The vug also opens up on the back side of the matrix.

Quartz casts pseudomorphing Rhodochrosites. The Rhodo rhombs are in excellent condition and
