576  Rhodochrosite Stalactites
Burgin Mine, East Tintic District, East Tintic Mts, Utah Co., Utah, United States  
large-cabinet  19.5 x 6 x 4.5 cm

ex. Nancy Collins collection

This is definitely the finest Utah rhodochrosite specimen I'm aware of. Pale rosy flattened rhombohedral crystals of rhodochrosite thickly coat 2-cm cores of solid brown-red rhodo with banding evident. I have to wonder whether this was part of the find made by Cliff Dilbert in 1975? (see specimens 322 and 323).
