559  Rhodochrosite on Goethite
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru  
miniature  3.3 x 3.1 x 2.7 cm

   ex. Kevin Brown

Rob: Beautifully nestled in a vug is a well-formed, large (3 cm.), crystal of lustrous, cherry red, rhodochrosite . It is translucent to transparent, mostly the latter. It is even doubly terminated with a sharp prism atop and a flat basal termination on the bottom. In fact, given this, it displays just as nicely on a horizontal viewing [as shown here -rmg], with the dt-crystal perched atop the knoll of matrix. For its style, it is a unique specimen. --- Photos ©2006 Richard Geiger
