A 1.4 cm, opaque, lightly frosted and light pink rhodochrosite crystal is nestled in the grasp of tiny quartz teeth in matrix crevice. This larger rhodo is pristine but the little sidecar rhodo is cleaved. The massive quartz/rhodochrosite matrix was sawn to extract the specimen from the tough matrix without damage. The sawn faces provide good bases. Priced so even a starving, overworked graduate student can afford it.
