Once though to be just Rhodonite was correctly identified later as Pyroxmangite. This is a large specimen with good pink color and granular sulfides.

Because of the size and weight of the specimen, an additional charge is calculated into the shipping cost. Exact costs will be determined at the post office and a refund or a request for more funds will be issued.
