ID: CC1603

An attractive sparkling specimen of N'Chwaning Rhodochrosite. The Rhodochrosite forms a botryoidal druse of intergrown crystals, reflecting the light from the many lustrous multi orientated crystal faces. The Rhodochrosite is a translucent rich pink formed on an earlier thin generation of pale pink opaque Rhodochrosite. The matrix is a reddish brown dense to cellular Hematite with some black Mn Oxides apparent. A fine specimen from this classic location.
