10.7" Tall, Polished Rhodonite Obelisk - Madagascar

This is a beautiful, 10.7" tall rhodonite obelisk, mined in Madagascar. The polish on this specimen is excellent and the tip is undamaged. The base has been cut flat, though at a slight angle, leaving the obelisk with somewhat of a lean.

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.
