This is a superb example of expertly sliced and polished RHODOCHROSITE from the famed Capillitas Mine in Andalaga, Catamarca, Argentina. The color of the rhodochrosite is a rich red, with delicate pink, ivory white, and silver gray colors growing in thin bands and multiple rings. This formation results from the creation of a stalactite mass that grew from the ceiling to the floor of the mine. This is a very choice example of this kind of banded rhosochrosite, and shows no damage. Sadly, the mine has closed, so once the material already mined is sold, there will be no new amterial coming out.
