Rhodochrosite on Chalcedony

$1,750.00   €1,507  £1,270.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC14179
Richly coloured, deep red-brown gemmy lustrous scalenohedral crystals of Rhodochrosite measuring to 5 mm are clustered and scattered over translucent, botryoidal blue Chalcedony coating a grey manganese-oxide matrix from the N'Chwaning mines in South Africa.  The colour of the Chalcedony really makes this a stunning miniature, being an inky teal with a waxy to greasy lustre.  The contrast between the red Rhodochrosite and blue Chalcedony is both beautiful and unusual.
