Wow! This is hands-down the best Chinese Rhodochrosite combo specimen we've ever seen for sale! The aesthetics are outstanding, the size is incredible, and the rhodochrosite is vibrant red when viewed from the front side. The matrix is a dark goethite, and it is covered with red-pink rhodochrosite and pale blue fluorite. The main Rhodochrosite crystal is 5.5cm wide x 3.8cm deep, and the front face is flat and clean which gives it a very good cherry-red color since this is the gemmy side of that crystal. The other sides are more etched and weathered, so they display a more typical pink coloring typical of Chinese rhodochrosite. When viewed in the display cabinet with a light shining on the large rhodo crystal it really looks amazing, and glows red! The contrast of the red against the dark goethite makes it even better.

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
