Help! Advice Needed

[Delete] Ad number: 12175 Posted: 10/30/2014 13:38:25 UT
We found a rock and took it in to a shop that sells various small rocks gems and fossils to find out what it was. We were told it is Green Adventurine. It weighs about 150 lbs. is there a market for a rock such as this as I know they make jewelry and beads etc .... Out of this stone. (Quartz) I am trying to find out if it is worth selling or if we should just keep it for landscaping. Can someone with knowledge to this please help me out. It is beautiful even in this natural state. Thank you

Exceptional Sweet Home Rhodochrosite Display Specimen
Here is an Awesome specimen of Sweet Home Rhodochrosite from Alma, Colorado. This specimen consist of two large plates hooked together and has beautiful Pink Rhombs nestled in amongst the bed of Quartz Needles, Cubo-Octahedrons of Purple Fluorite Crystals, Pyrite and Silver Tetrahedrite. This one has crystals on the top and the bottom of the top plate, as well as the top of the lower plate and is certainly a rare beauty from this legendary locale. If you wanted, I believe a skilled specimen collector could possibly separate the 4 lb.- 5 oz. specimen into 2 fantastic plates. This beauty measures 20 cm x 13 cm x 9 cm thick with the larger Rhombs measuring 1.4 cm. The Sweet Home mine is closed forever and the price on large specimens like this are sure to skyrocket. This would make an excellent addition to your collection or fantastic Christmas gift . Asking $1200
