A specimen of intense reddish-pink rhodochrosite crystals on a beautifully contrasting matrix of black manganese minerals and silver ore.  While the Uchuccacua mine is primarily a silver mine, these are found these every few to several years in the course of normal exploration.  This piece comes from a pocket hit around 7-8 years ago.
