A side view of the "Rose of Alma".
The original "Star of Alma" faceted gem cut by Robert Spomer around 1992 and displayed at the Denver Museum of Science and Nature. This stone was later recut to less than 30 carats to get a more flawless gem, then acquired by a private collector after the museum acquired a larger stone. We apologize for the quality of the larger image not being as good as we'd like, but it was the only picture we could find. 
Drusy rhodochrosite from Mexico. Not gemmy, but very sparkly and attractive. On a limonite matrix.
Cluster of bladed rhodochrosite from Urchuchaqui, Peru, with quartz.
