ID: CC7869
Three intergrown crystals of Rhodonite dominate this cabinet specimen from the Franklin Mining District in New Jersey, USA.  Rhodonite crystals of mottled, dirty bubble gum pink measure to 3.5 cm tall and are associated with metallic black Franklinite in a white Calcite and Rhodonite matrix.  The cleaved rhombs of white Calcite at the crest of the specimen fluoresce pale cherry red under both long and short wave ultraviolet.  Rhodonite crystals of up to 1 cm are not uncommon at Franklin, but these, at well over 3 cm, are quite exceptional.  The Franklin-Ogdensburg orebody is one of the world’s most mineralogically diverse localities and is a firm favourite amongst collectors.  This classic old-time specimen is accompanied with an Anton Berger (Mödling bei Wien) printed and typed label.
