15PR09 Rhodochrosite
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
1.7x 1.3x 1.4 cm
$900

A relatively large and very gemmy rhodochrosite point from the Uchuccachua Mine.  This is primarily a silver mine, though every few to several years since the 1980's it has yielded these beautiful rhodochrosites.  Without a doubt this is one of the top 3 mines for the species, along with N'Chwaning and Sweet Home.

This thumbnail has unusually deep color, and again, a more hefty appearance than most others in the same size range.
