This was one of the surprises from the trip-- rhodochrosite from Pasto Bueno.  This locality is famous for having produced spectacular rhodochrosite specimens in the 1970's, but has produced almost none of this material for much of the last 40 years.  On visits over the last 3-4 years however, I had seen small bits of rhodochrosite-- usually tiny loose cleavage fragments, but never anything worth purchasing.  This time, I came across a few decent specimens-- they were found nearly a year ago and held back.  This was the best piece from the group.
