Dimensions: 11.5 cm x 5.2 cm x 2.2 cm

A flat matrix plate of crystallized "needle quartz" measuring 11.5 x 5.2 x 2.2 cm in size, this aesthetically scattered with many fine pink rhombohedral crystals of rhodochrosite to 1.0 cm in size. Very clean of damage; very typical for this famous pocket. The contrast of the pink rhodochrosite on the white needle quartz is very pleasing. Ex Lloyd Tate collection. Ref: The Mineralogical Record: 29: 4.
