Small but beautifully pink and lightly frosted to somewhat gemmy rhodochrosite crystals populate clefts at the matrix apex. Individual crystals reach 3-4 mm, and some are doubly terminated. Very typical for the species from this locality. Except for the usual edge issues there is no damage. Displays nicely as shown on a flat matrix face.
