Uncommonly rare crystallized cabinet specimen of Rhodochrosite from the famed locality known for Rhodo stalactites.
Pretty, pastel-pink, sparkling rhodochrosite rhombs densely cover matrix and form a showy and excellent mounded specimen from the famed Capillitas Mine. This is classic, old material from this locality.
Today, fine crystallized specimens with rich color like this are never seen on the the market.
