For sale is a largish crystal of rhodonite with galena, from Broken Hill, NSW. An undamaged crystal with excellent luster and uncommonly sharp face junctions, while not gemmy the crystal is translucent, not bad for a crystal this size. As can be seen from the second pic the top termination is a stepped, again quite typical for Broken Hill rhodonite's. the galena which covers an area at the top and a small amount of the side faces, is not quite as bright as the pics indicate. Today crystals of this size and presentation, are just not seen or are priced at stratospheric levels. Ex Berni Williams collection, (Broken Hill miner)
