It is always a pleasure to be able to offer what is very likely one of the finest stones cut from an entire find.  This magnificent Rhodochrosite represents an essentially 'perfect' example of the now closed Chinese deposit.  The color is exceptional - a vivid watermelon shade that is a wonder of the gem world.  Additionally, the cutting is a thing of beauty - precision in every way.  Rhodochrosite is not the easiest gem material to cut in the first place, but you wouldn't know it to look at this beauty.  The polish is superb as well - simply nothing at all to detract from the color and optical properties of the material.  This mine is currently closed and is producing no rough and even if it stays inoperative, we are happy to have had the chance to offer this superb, museum caliber example.
