Rhodochrosite on Parsettensite


Availability: 1 in stock

Rhodochrosite at the Foote has many habits, and this piece has a cascade of somewhat amorphous crystals which barely resemble the rhombohedral form. The coverage gets quite dense. A professional trim would have this looking pretty awesome. I believe the association to be Parsettensite.
