Description:

This is a very interesting, old, classic rhodochrosite specimen from this closed, classic locality. It shows almost trigonal forms, composed of many many small stacked, pastel-pink, rhombohedral crystals of rhodochrosite, very likely a pseudomorph after calcite. Impossible to find something like this in the locality nowadays, such pieces might only emerge from old collections!
