ID: CC20498
Uchucchacua mine in Oyon Province, Peru.  This deep mine works a polymetallic orebody hosted in early Cretaceous limestones with both hydrothermal and metasomatic mineralisation.  The translucent Rhodochrosite crystals form complex rhombohedral crystals modified to equant blocky prisms of garnet-like appearance.  The faces are either finely striated or display micro-rhombohedral steps.  A fabulous Rhodochrosite off-set beautifully by the underlying lustrous Quartz.
