Sunnyside Mine, Bonita Peak, Gladstone, Eureka District, San Juan County, Colorado - The Sunnyside Mine produced some very well known Rhodochrosite specimens in its history, along with some attractive association pieces. This specimen features sharp, well-formed, attractive rhombohedra of notably RED colored Rhodochrosite which are associated with Quartz on matrix. The largest Rhodo crystal measures 7 mm, but the most imporant aspect is the RED color of the rhombs, as the vast majority of Sunnyside Rhodos are a shade of pink, and red crystals are very hard to find. Beautiful, classic material and is a true staple of any good Colorado collection. Rob Lavinsky collection, original label.  Overall size is 5x3.5x3 cm

Sweet Home mine, near Alma, Park County, Colorado, USA - The Sweet Home mine is world famous for its Rhodochrosite specimens. For those who don't know, Richard Kosnar and his father-in-law Dave Bergman mined the Sweet Home for a few years during the late 1970's and managed to collect some excellent specimens. This piece features a predominant, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, rich pinkish-red rhombohedron of Rhodochrosite measuring 1.1 cm across that is perched aesthetically on contrasting black Sphalerite matrxi with minor Pyrite. This is an unusual Rhodo from the Sweet Home as they are not often seen on Sphalerite like this. It would make a great addition to any Colorado suite, a Rhodo collection or a suite of thumbnail. This piece is from one of the early pockets that Rich and Dave opened when they started mining in 1977. Overall size is 2x1.5x1.5 cm. Ex Rob Lavinsky coll.
