After all the rhodonite that has been shared between Margie and Mick, I could not pass this slab up when I found it at the club.  dancer5 

It is nice and hard, very much like rhodonite that I am familiar with and have cabbed before.

I will probably take a little more time and see if I can do a little better.

This one was taken down to 600 on the silicon carbide belt, and then to some tin oxide.
