ID: CC21684
Tangerine-orange and creamy apricot druses of Rhodochrosite crystals coat a shallow open vug across the top of a brecciated black manganese matrix from the N'Chwaning Mines in South Africa.  This group of mines lies within the Kalahari Manganese Field in Northern Cape Province.  The Rhodochrosite crystals attain about 5 mm in length and are transparent to translucent with a highly reflective glassy lustre.  Nestling towards one end and overgrowing the Rhodochrosite is a 2.7 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm blocky transparent Gypsum crystal.  A terrific miniature from N'Chwaning.
