Colorful specimen of Rhodochrosite with Quartz, Tetrahedrite, and Malachite! As far as I know, only one pocket with Malachite was found at the Sweet Home Mine. Most specimens from there had poor quality Rhodo in pretty rough shape. This was the only specimen I found that had several complete and gemmy rhombs with the Malachite! From the Malachite Pocket, 3rd Tetrahedrite Raise, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado. Measures 8.5 cm by 5.5 cm in size.
