OKL-790

OKL-790    Rhodochrosite on Manganite    Moanda Mine, Haut-Ogooue Province, Gabon, Africa.  Ex. Thomas G. Fowler collection. Deep blood red, transparent schalenohedral rhodos on black botryoidal manganite from an exceedingly rare location.  Iíve only seen a few of these over the years and were it not from the collection of a South African specialist I would question the location, due to the rarity of this material. The piece is damage free and of interesting form.  3.8 x 2.2 x 2 cm overall with one side and other surfaces showing nice coverage by small crystals.  Nicely mounted in a perky box.  A really specialistís specimen.  $600
