Rhodochrosite / Locality - Zanett Tunnel, Grizzly Bear Mine, Ouray County, Colorado


Shipping to United States: Free

Some of the most noteworthy Rhodos from Ouray County are those from the Grizzly Bear Mine. This piece hosts several, translucent, well-formed simple rhombohedra of soft reddish-pink Rhodochrosite on Quartz and sulfide matrix. This piece was collected by Joe Mattivi in the 1980s. A great thumbnail specimen from this famous locality that was reopened in the 1980s in the Ouray Amphitheater when the Zanett Tunnel was driven to reconnect with the Grizzly Bear Mine on northwest slopes of Engineer Mountain. These pieces are few and far between nowadays, so don’t miss out on this one. Better in person, and hard to photograph.
