A well developed crystal of Hausmannite on Andradite from the celebrated N'Chwaning Mines, South Africa. The Hausmannite forms a metallic deep grey pseudo-octahedron perched on top of the matrix. The crystal measures 1.5cm with tiny stepped triangular growth features. Orangey-red Andradite Garnet accompanies in varying sizes to 2mm, forming the matrix on top of a silvery Manganese oxide core. It has a partial coating of a whiteish mineral. An excellent display of Hausmannite from the location known for producing the best specimens.
