English: Fluorite, Quartz, Rhodochrosite
Locality: Sweet Home Mine (Home Sweet Home Mine), Mount Bross, Alma District, Park County, Colorado, USA (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: small cabinet, 8 x 5.8 x 3.8 cm
Rhodochrosite, Fluorite, Quartz
Translucent, rich pink rhombs of rhodochrosite, the largest of which is 5 cm across, are studded with stunning, gemmy, light-purple, cubes of fluorite to .6 > also accenting the red color are 1 cm, sparkling, colorless quartz crystals. There is only trivial edge wear and a small 4 mm spot of minor damage to the very rear edge, at the visual periphery of the large rhomb and to the back from its front angle of display; but that is to be expected for such a soft mineral and a crystal of such size. There are no repairs or plastic fill, which is notable and also quite unusual for a specimen of this size and exposure. The crystal is very 3-dimensional, and perched as if upon a natural pedestal of smaller crystals and a big of galena-rich matrix. The overall effect is stunning , and there is a lot more sparkle and color flash to the piece in person than you gather from teh picture. Now that the Sweet Home Mine is closed permanently, specimens of this quality are rapidly escalating in price and i CANNOT replace a piece like this at ANY price. Frankly, they are like money in the bank which is why I now post so few of my stash of these critters, and accumulate others to save in the bank. As far as any mineral I have ever seen. good Sweet Homes are an appreciable asset to high degree. 8 x 5.8 x 3.8 cm
