9.9" Tall, Polished Rhodonite Obelisk - Madagascar
This is a beautiful, 9.9" tall rhodonite obelisk, mined in Madagascar. The base has been cut, allowing for aesthetic presentation on any flat surface. There is a section of gap fill along one edge and some minor breakage at the base of the obelisk. These imperfections have been reflected in the price of the specimen.
Rhodonite is well known among collectors for its beautiful pink and red color. The red variety can be so deep red that it rivals the color of Ruby. Rhodonite often has black manganese oxide veins running through a specimen, giving it the distinct appearance of pink with black crisscrossing lines and flower-like formations throughout.
