Rhodochrosite
Foote Lithium Co. Mine (Foote Mine), Kings Mountain District, Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA
64 x 18 x 76mm

An outstanding rhodochrosite from the Foote Mine, in Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA! This specimen features a multitude of elongated, doubly-terminated rhodochrosite crystals that have formed over a bit of pegmatitic matrix. An unknown mineral is associated. The Foote Mine began operations in about 1938. It is famous for rare phosphates and silicates, boasting an impressive list of over 150 species! In it’s prime, the Foote produced some of the finest fluorapatite and bikitaite in the world, along with many other minerals such as rhodochrosite, lithiophyllite, roscherite, fairfieldite, childrenite, etc. The mine has since ceased operations and is now flooded. Material from this rather obscure U.S locality is very hard to find on the market today, and typically consists of small micromounts. Comes with a custom acryclic base. Ex. Jack Eaker Collection.
