Dimensions: 5.1 cm x 2.9 cm x 1.3 cm

A difficult-to-obtain old Butte rhodo with relatively large and well-defined crystals for the locality. Such freefloating rhombs are unusual, as the normal style is flattenned rhombs crouched flat to matrix. The crystals measure to 1.6 cm across, and are quite well-defined, standing out in good relief from the sparing massive rhodo in back. 5.1 x 2.9 x 1.3 cm
