Polished Rhodochrosite slices
Gorgeous polished slices of Rhodochrosite, a lovely pink banded mineral. These are sometimes known as 'bacon rock' and you can see why...
These slices are highly polished on one side and left rough on the other.
- Slice #1 measures around 85x40x9MM.
- Slice #2 is a little larger, measuring around 120x70x9MM.
They are both from Argentina, have then been cut and polished here in the UK!
You may have seen perfectly round slices of Rhodochrosite in the past - these are slices cut from Stalactites and do not tend to be banded. These pieces are not from stalactite formations and are layered.
They make a great display object but could be cut into cabochons if you decide. We don't currently supply slice stands but it ought to be relatively easy to find some online.
