- THIS UPDATE'S FEATURED SPECIMEN -
Gorgeous red scalenohedral crystals of Rhodochrosite on Manganite matrix!
Pure color and pure gem! I haven't offered many South African Rhodos over the years but this one
caught my eye the moment I saw it! The crystals display the deepest coloration and most display full
terminations and glassy faces that clearly show the inner gemminess of each Rhodo! It's amazing that
something so red can also be so transparent. This specimen displays intense color even under faint
lighting. As is the norm with most of these specimens, there are some incomplete crystals mixed in
with the terminated crystals but these get lost visually in the overall intensity of color. Also, this
specimen is covered on ALL SIDES by gemmy Rhodochrosite crystals because it formed on a matrix
knob so it is a true 360 degree displayable specimen! One of the finest N'Chwaning Rhodos at the show.
From the N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.
Measures 5 cm by 6.5 cm by 5 cm in total size.
