A cracking specimen of Rhodochrosite from the N'Chwaning Mines, South Africa. The Rhodochrosite completely lines a cavity in black Mn-ore, forming intergrown bundles of prismatic striated crystals. They are gemmy to translucent and very lustrous, measuring on average 0.5cm long. The Rhodochrosite has a firey orangey-red colour, formed on a pink previous generation of Rhodochrosite. A very fine specimen from the Kalahari Manganese Field, famed for its Rhodochrosites.
