ID: CC21896
This small miniature is a fine example of the blockier crystallised habit of Rhodochrosite from the N'Chwaning Mines at Kuruman in the Kalahari Manganese Field of South Africa.  The largest crystal is approximately 1.5 x 1.0 x 0.9 cm and grades from almost colourless at its edges to delicate crushed strawberry red toward its centre and apex.  This also applies to the several other smaller Rhodochrosite crystals.  Set against a matrix of crystallised Manganite blades covering a dense black Manganite matrix, this specimen will make an eye-catching addition to any collection.
