I rarely see rhodonite crystals from the San Martin Mine that are colored more intensely rosy pink.  This is a superb specimen for this locality, and the crystals have a good luster that really draws the eye.  The crystals, many of which stand up on edge, have an interesting arrangement to them on the matrix that adds a lot to the charm of this piece. The piece is a very good example of the material from the famed 2009 find.
