Miniature, 3.5 x 1.8 x 1.4 cm
N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A stunning, lemon yellow, COMPLETE floater crystal of the rare species ettringite, most probably from the best finds for the species yet in the early 1980s. The crystal is complete all ath eway around and has just a small attachment of calcite at its base, which acts like a natural kickstand to help prop it up if so desired. Specimens of this quality, undamged, and with this color...they are vanishingly few and far between! 3.5 x 1.8 x 1.4 cm
