Investment Grade. A 6.75 Inch Polished Rhodochrosite. Thick Cut at .5 inch. Old time Collection from Capillitas, Argentina.


I have had this tucked away for years. I obtained this thick slice of Top notch Rhodochrosite directly from the mines owner in 1980's from his own collection. It has been my center piece in my cabinet. Complete edge all around is important to me. I don't like fractured pieces. The size, color, shape and thick cut makes this an investment piece not to mention this mine is long gone. Google rhodochrosite slabs and slices and see what comes up. Hands down the finest one could hope to own. Measure is 6.75 inch by 4.75 inch by .5 inch thick making this sturdy and strong. The multiple eyes add to it's appeal. Weight: 1 pound 5.8 ounce. The polish is professionally done with mirror like finish both sides and even all across. I do not like uneven thickness. The piece has a tine chip which you can see in one of the photos but no way does it detract nor affect the value. Please, price is solid on this one of a kind and will only climb in value as the mine and mountain is gone. The area was sold to a diamond operation that leveled it long ago. If you collect the finest as I do you will see the value in this piece. Mined sometime in 1970, Capillitas mine, Argentina.
