This is new stuff from Peru - Rhodochrosite. I just sourced a new batch with some bigger pieces and all are hand selected (by me) for color. It has nice pink color. No, it's not quite as dark as the top Argentina material, but it's also not $60+ per pound! It cuts and polishes beautifully, and is a really pretty color. I have included a photo of a slab of this rough - it is NOT INCLUDED in the auction. OFFERED WITH NO RESERVE!! This piece weighs 2.22 pounds. See photo. Buyer to pay $9.50 shipping/handling. COMBINE WINS TO SAVE ON SHIPPING!! See my other auctions for more cutting rough. Combine auctions to save on shipping. Email any ?? before bidding. Thanks for looking and HAPPY BIDDING!! PLEASE STAY TUNED TO ROCKMAN69 IN THE WEEKS (AND MONTHS) TO COME!! I HAVE TONS OF NEW (OLD) MATERIALS TO BRING TO EBAY SOON! Rockman69 is an ebay powerseller, so bid with confidence!!
