A fine single crystal of Rhodochrosite on a Quartz matrix from the famous Uchucchacua Mine in Peru. The Rhodochrosite forms a lustrous deep red translucent to transparent crystal. The crystal sits attractively on a micro-crystalline drusy Quartz, creating a white backdrop, which in turn covers a previous generation of Quartz crystals on a thin band of black Mn-Fe oxides. A fine Rhodochrosite from the Uchucchacua Mine, with a sizeable crystal. Repaired.
