158  Rhodochrosite Stalactite
Capillitas Mine, Andalgal√°, Catamarca, Argentina  
small-cabinet  6.6 x 2.1 x 2 cm

Rob: This REMARKABLY COMPLETE rhodo stalagtite is totally covered in pastel pink CRYSTALS as opposed to the usual botryoidal type we often see. The crystallization extends all around and front and back, making this one of the very best specimen examples of this material I have handled or seen for sale. The chances of seeing this combination together is very rare. This is a must for rhodo collectors who might normally ignore the stuff as lapidary material (it makes for beautiful slices, though, doesn't it?)!
