ID: CC7318
An excellent cut and polished slice of a Rhodochrosite stalactite from the Capillitas mine in north-western Argentina.  This large miniature specimen displays a fabulous range of translucent pink colours, showing essentially four core stalactites which coalesce to form one.  The many hues of pink include candy, coral, flamingo and fuchsia, forming concentric rings interlaced by fine polychromatic veining.  The outer faces of the stalactite are coated with an aesthetic thin rind of creamy white Rhodochrosite, or possibly a final deposition of Calcite, displaying a very shallow botryoidal habit.  A captivating and quite beautiful Rhodochrosite from Argentina.
