Choice and very lustrous inter grown crystals of Hausmannite from the N'Chwaning II mine in the Kalahari Manganese Field of South Africa.  The Hausmannite crystals are sharply formed in a pyramid like habit, measuring to at least 1.3 cm on edge, with faintly striated faces with twinning also apparent.  The Hausmannite crystals are formed on a vein of white Calcite over a reddish to grey black iron-manganese oxide matrix.  A fine Hausmannite miniature from this most famous mine.
