Japanese Rhodochrosite on Pyrite (Ref: AU17-OPPU)

Oppu Mine, Honshu Island, Japan 
110mm x 96mm x 22mm
minID: 193-FY3
$4000
Japanese Rhodochrosite specimens are among the most sought after in the world, and they are perhaps the rarest to find for sale. The Oppu Mine on the island of Honshu has been closed for decades with the majority of the mining having been done in the 17th-19th centuries. As a result there is very little of this material on the market, and aesthetic, high-quality specimens like this one are extremly, extremely hard to come by. Most specimens you'll see for sale are just chucks of red rock that usually have a good amount of damage. This specimen, however, is exceptional, and we believe it to be the best Oppu Mine Rhodochrosite for sale online right now.
