Description/Interesting Notes: A magnificent, 19th century example of rhodonite from Franklin!!! This specimen hosts a group of large, robust pink crystals of rhodonite intergrown with some white calcite and frank...linite!!! The crystals exhibit lustrous, sharply defined faces and rich pink color!!! The main crystal is complete and in magnificent condition!!! This specimen retains an old, 19th century label from Princeton University (label says "College of New Jersey" which dates it to pre-1896) that describes the specimen as "Fowlerite" which is a somewhat antiquated varietal term for the species and also notes the locality as simply "Sterling" (although it is almost certainly from nearby Franklin!!! This specimen also has an old, affixed catalogue number and retains an additional unattributed label as well!!! Very attractive specimen in person!!! The pics hardly do it justice!!! Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
