This is an outstanding large cabinet-size specimen of glassy, vibrant cherry-red rhodochrosite crystals associated with contrasting tetrahedrite and chalcopyrite crystals on quartz from the Corner Pocket Area, Watercourse Raise, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado, USA. The Corner Pocket area of the Sweet Home mine produced a small number of rhodochrosite specimens that compare favorably to the best ever produced at this iconic locality, and this is one of those pieces. Superb glassy luster, deep saturated color, and contrasting matrix all make for a stunning display piece. A very choice Sweet Home rhodochrosite that would enhance any collection. Riley Owen photo.
