Giant Rhodochrosite Crystal from Peru (Ref: JV22-RHODO)

Manuelita Mine, Yauli Province, Junin, Peru
66mm x 81mm x 53mm
Here is a rather special specimen from Peru. It's a HUGE rhombehedral rhodochrosite crystal; well, actually it's a series of several intergrown crystals, but the main on in front is enormous, and the one in back of it is actually even bigger! It looks much more like a large Colorado specimen than Peru, but it is from the Manuelita Mine there. 
Data last checked on 9th May 2022 - specimen may no longer be available
