A museum-quality, large cabinet-size specimen of very sharp, cherry-red rhodochrosite crystals to ~4 cm on edge on a matrix of chalcopyrite and quartz crystals with white sericite mica from the iconic Sweet Home Mine. This association of sharp, deep red rhodochrosite crystals with brassy chalcopyrite crystals and sericite is very characteristic of specimens from the Collector's Pocket. Very few specimens of this size/quality were produced from this pocket, and this is an exceptional Sweet Home rhodochrosite with lots of visual "wow" impact for less than 6 figures. Please inquire for a 360 degree video of this superb Sweet Home Mine rhodochrosite.
