431  Hubnerite-included Rhodochrosite with Tetrahedrite on Quartz
Sweet Home Mine, [Rob's Pocket, Mini-King Raise], Alma, Alma District, Park Co., Colorado, United States  
small-cabinet  6.5 x 5.5 x 5 cm

   ex. Irv Brown

[SH2003]

The main rhomb is included bottom-to-top by a single Hubnerite that extends almost to the edge of the specimen.

From Steve Behling of the Collector's Edge:

Rob's Pocket was found in August 1997
Hedgehog Pocket was found in Sept '96

Pockets were less than 50 feet apart ... similar mineral assemblage ...
Rhodo, Quartz, Huebnerite ... as a general rule, Rob's Pocket pieces have a
little stronger red color and often better luster than the Hedgehog.
