A flat plate of cryptocrystalline Sturmanite is completely coated with flattened hexagonal pagoda-like Sturmanite crystals to over 1 cm across. From the classic N'Chwaning mines at Kuruman in the Kalahari Manganese Field, South Africa, the opaque crystals are a burnt toffee-terracotta with a dull to bright lustre depending on the crystal face.  Dispersed amongst, and nestling between these crystals are granular aggregates of black Hausmannite.  A choice Sturmanite from N'Chwaning.
