A fine and showy specimen with crystals up to 1,2 cm richly perched on typically gossan matrix. A distinguishd old-time classic from the Wolf Mine of Herdorf, Siegerland. The luscious, raspberry-red crystal have more of a wheat-sheaf and some of them are doubly terminated and the terminations are well-formed, and complex. Rhodochrosite from the Wolf mine is probably one of the best known mineral species from Germany in the world. The specimens from there are considered to be among the best of Europe and they are present in museums and collections worldwide. Finds were restricted to the active mining period so nowadays specimens from there are highly sought after and increasing in value.This great specimen comes with two antique labels.
