ID: CC18397
A rich and splendid coverage of lustrous rhombohedral Rhodochrosite crystals to 1.2 cm on edge contrast nicely against a manganese-rich matrix, parts of which have developed a lustrous black botryoidal surface.  This specimen is from the Uchucchacua mine in the Lima Department of Peru, a mine well known for its beautiful Rhodochrosite.  The crystals are deep flesh-pink; have an opaque core with translucent outer shell and each face is framed with a semi-translucent deep salmon-pink edge.  A highly aesthetic and showy Rhodochrosite from the Uchucchacua mine in Peru.
