For sale is a relatively uncommon rhodochrosite stalactite from Argentina. This very special piece has been polished expertly to show the wonderful dark colored banded rhodochrosite, as well as displaying the great stalactite nature of the specimen. These extraordinary specimen have only ever been found at this locality, no other in the world. This particular piece has a real bonus, even the base can be the main display, because of the very uncommon association of pyrite (and a little quartz) that is found on the base, stunning with the polished rhodochrosite surrounding it! (see last pic)This is just beautiful!! To give you and idea of the fine three dimensional nature of this piece, it weights a hefty 216gms. First rate color.Ex Jack Schlittler collection.
