The masterpiece of this current auction,- a stunning Rhodochrosite from the famous N´Chwaning I Mine near Hotazel at the Kalahari Manganese Fields. This style of Rhodochrosite came out in the early 1980s and is often referred to as "wheatsheaves." The colour can truly be called "raspberry red." Here is a relatively large, rolling plate of the transparent to translucent crystals on pure !!! Rhodo-matrix. The luster is beautiful in person, it is hard to convey in photos. These are beautiful and truly unique Rhodochrosite formations, not found anywhere else, and have always gone for a premium since day one. Today, such specimens, especially in this size, are hard to come by on the open market. This super aesthetic thing is very nearly pristine on its display face and for the size, an uncommon find.
