40  Rhodochrosite
Sweet Home Mine [Steve's Pocket], Alma, Alma District, Park Co., Colorado, United States  
miniature  4.6 x 2.3 x 2 cm

Pat's description: With the exception of purple flurorite, this extraordinary specimen of rhodochrosite reads like a directory of the minerals found in the Sweet Home Mine. Cherry pink rhombs of rhodochrosite are nestled among a forest of needle quartz spires on a bed of massive tetrahedrite, quartz and pyrite! Best of all, the piece is accented by a large, (quarter inch across) well terminated shiny gold pyrite crystal on one end, set off by a matte black sphalerite crystal.
