PostPosted: Nov 18, 2017 08:58    Post subject: Information about a Rhodochrosite specimen  

I have been made aware of a unique color-zoning in Rhodochrosite, loosely referred to as "Peppermint Rhodochrosite" (Photo attached). This apparently showed up as a single find exhibited at Tucson in 2013. I have no other information about this in terms of numbers of specimens available or even the locality. I'm not even totally sure it wasn't Calcite. Could someone fill me in on this oddity? Particularly any known source. I don't know the name of the exhibitor at Tucson.
Thanks,
Bill Logan

Hi Bill,

I sold this specimen in Tucson several years ago in 2013. It was the best specimen from a small find and I never did see any other specimens beyond this small lot. Very distinctive and truth, I wish I'd have had many more! Here is a link to one of the Tucson show reports which featured the specimen. I hope this helps. All the very best,

John
