Colorado Rhodochrosites

Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Penny Hall Penny Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19717, USA

Among the hundreds of gold and silver mines that operated in Colorado from the 1870’s to the present are many that also produced vivid red-pink rhodochrosite specimens. Although the Sweet Home Mine in Park County, Colorado is best known for the rhodochrosite specimens mined during the 1990’s, many other Colorado mines have produced aesthetic examples of this manganese carbonate mineral.

 

Specimens from the Sweet Home Mine , as well as lesser known mines such as the Grizzly Bear, Moose and Sunnyside mines, are displayed here, thanks to a generous loan from Dave Bunk.

 

Exhibition will be on display - February 6- May 12, 2013 - Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - 12:00-5:00pm; Thursday - 12-8pm
