ID: CC2509
A fine single crystal of Rhodochrosite adorns the apex of the specimen from the Santa Eulalia mining area in Mexico. The single crystal of Rhodochrosite measures to nearly 1 cm and is nicely perched on a light grey-brown botryoidal matrix with a further well-formed 2 mm Rhodochrosite crystal, seen on the lower portion of the specimen. The Rhodochrosite is a mixture of coral and rose-pink and varies from small gemmy zones to more pervasive translucent throughout, with all faces displaying a bright glassy lustre.  Also scattered over the specimen are black micro crystals of possible "Alabandite". The Rhodochrosite does have a couple of natural contact points yet remains a great specimen from the area.
