Lot Details
Rhodochrosite
Argentina
A natural, unrepaired slice of rhodochrosite stalactites, grown together to form beautiful conjoining circular patterns, displays the desirable deep rose color of the most coveted examples of its kind. The large stalactite specimen was, remarkably, excavated as one intact piece; most specimens of such size are repaired and restored. It has been cut and polished to reveal the inner beauty of its stalactitic origin. The notable piece shows no restoration of any kind.
