MINERALOGICAL MUSEUM

Rhodochrosite, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado

Colorado Rhodochrosites
From the Collection of Dave Bunk

September 5 – December 9, 2012

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.
