For fellow lovers of the state mineral rhodochrosite, here is a news article published on the Collector's Edge web site.

Detroit City: Another Chapter in the story of Sweet Home Rhodochrosite! -- November 27, 2017

Please note from the article that the mine is off limits to unauthorized visitors, esp. during the mine's development stage. The article includes some history and photos of the Sweet Home. For a more complete history including maps of the Sweet Home Mine workings, the Collector's Edge web site has the following article. It includes a beautiful map of the rhodochrosite pockets found in the Main Stope.
