6.3 x 5.2 x 3.7 cm The Champion Mine is well known to Colorado collectors, but specimens are seldom available. The piece features dozens of sharp, soft pink color, compressed rhombohedra of rhodochrosite forming semi-"rosette"-shaped groups associated with contrasting metallic golden pyrite and oxidized chalcopyrite on matrix. The largest group of rhodochrosite measures 4 mm. From the collection of Dave Bergman, a Colorado miner (the foreman and primary person in charge of recovering specimens at the famous Sweet Home Mine near Alma, Colorado during the late 1970s) and the maternal grandfather of Brian Kosnar.
