A lustrous, botryoidal plate of pearly-white Brucite on matrix. The banded Brucite has a secondary growth that partially coats the botryoids, which range up to .7 cm across. This secondary coating has an incredible shimmer to it, and is also fluorescent. This uncommon habit for Brucite, at least for N'Chwaning II, is very attractive. Ex. Charlie Key.
