A well-developed gemmy to translucent crystal of Rhodochrosite measuring to 3.2 cm sits upon grey-black undefined Manganese-oxides covering a whitish rock matrix.  Two smaller Rhodochrosite crystals sit on the specimen, the smallest is adjacent to the large crystal and one 1.7 cm long nestles alone amongst the Mn oxides.  From the classic Uchucchancua mine in Peru, the main crystal is a stunning rich cherry-red and is crowned with a perfect, undamaged sharp termination.
