ID: CC21894
An ex-matrix crystallised bed of densely packed Rhodochrosite crystals from the N'Chwaning Mines at Kuruman in the Kalahari Manganese Field of South Africa.  The cherry red scalenohedral crystals form a surface packed with terminations of individual crystals, each appearing 4 to 5 mm tall.  When viewed from the sides however, the true length of the crystals is revealed and these are typically between 1 and 1.4 cm long.  The prisms grade from semi transparent to translucent and when held against a strong light glow a lovely candy cherry red.  The crystal terminations end in small flat triangular pinacoids.  This choice miniature is an excellent example from this famous group of mines in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.
