Really nice color contrasts in that sphere with the black, pink and white.  Do you know where in Northern California it is sourced?

I sure do.  I dug it out of the ground.
It’s the spider rhodonite claim owned by the San Francisco club. I was invited on a field trip a couple of years ago. They may do another this summer. I am trying to get invited again
