A sharp, equant and lustrous Olmiite crystal measuring to 1 cm of a translucent, light pinkish tan sits at the apex of this choice thumbnail specimen. From the N'Chwaning II mine at Kuruman in South Africa, the type locality for Olmiite, which is a rare calcium-manganese silicate.  The Olmiite crystal nestles in a bed of sub-mm equant snow-white glassy Calcite crystals, which form an aesthetic foil.  A superb thumbnail of this rare species.
