A very colorful, highly lustrous cluster of rhodonite with a small bit of attached matrix atop, this is an excellent specimen for the price because it has color, sharp form, and overall would have been a worldbeater from Broken Hill in any case. It is just a bit short on height compared to width, but if you sit it on a shelf and backlight, the upside is that the whole length glows with a deep vibrant cherry color and it has a beter transparency for the size than others here, due to all that width for light to go through. In person, the lustre on this one is also among the best of the lot, bordering on metallic in shimmer.
