Gaudefroyite With Andradite

ID: CC4106

A fine richly adorned crystal specimen of Gaudefroyite with Andradite Garnet from the N'Chwaning ll Mine, South Africa. Lustrous prismatic crystals of Gaudefroyite measuring to 0.8cm inter-growing with translucent drusy orange-red crystals of Andradite. Crystals of Gaudefroyite also cover the underside of the specimen, mostly covered in a thin layer of Mn-oxide. A later deposition of black micro-crystals of Hausmannite has partly covered the Mn-oxide on the Gaudefroyite. A great specimen from the mine.
