Sweet Home Mine rhodochrosite is the standard against which all rhodochrosite is measured - and nothing comes close to matching the glassy, saturated red, sharp rhombohedral crystals that made this mine famous. This is an excellent, damage-free example of the high-quality material that was found before the mine closed in 2004. There is one small fluorite cube, in a light shade of purple, plus some small quartz crystals scattered about amongst the rhodochrosite crystals.  The quality is very high, and there is no particularly noticeable damage.
