Rhodochrosite

ID: CC965

A cute cut and highly polished slice of a classic Rhodochrosite stalactite from Argentina. The slice displays many concentric layers of growth with typical zigzag edges, and of varying colour from light pink to mid pink, some layers exhibiting transluceny. Over the slice measures 2cm in diameter by 0.3cm thick. A lovely little specimen!
