PostPosted: Apr 09, 2020 10:25    Post subject: Re: Don Lum Collection  

This rhodochrosite brings back memories for me. Back in the 90's while working in Wyoming, I took a trip to Butte, Montana, the goal was to collect a sample of covellite and rhodochrosite from the mine dumps.

As we arrived at the dump site, we noticed a large loader moving soil. The whole dump pile had been reclaimed and as my wife and I watched with disbelief, he dumped his load, covering the last remaining patch of rock and our collecting trip was over. While I have been fortunate to add a covellite specimen from Butte to my collection, a rhodochrosite specimen has eluded me.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful specimen Don.
