72067: Rhodochrosite Sphere Stone Source: Catamarca, Ar

Lot 72067
Rhodochrosite Sphere
Stone Source: Catamarca, Argentina

The material used to carve this bold sphere is quintessential Rhodochrosite from Argentina. This material grows in large intertwining stalactites. It is evident on this reddish orb where these stalactites grew given the presence of pale "eyes" across the entire surface of this decorative masterpiece. It would have taken a very large stalactite to provide this medium-sized sphere. Between the mesmerizing concentric rings and the bold reddish-pink color, this sphere is not to be taken lightly.
Overall Measurements: 4.25 inches (10.79 cm) in diameter

Provenance: Central Coast Collection 

[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
