Ettringite on Calcite
Miniature, 5.5 x 3.5 x 2.5 cm
N'Chwaning II Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
Ex. Charlie Key

A beautiful piece with the most intense lemon yellow hue! This specimen has several large scaleohedral calcites completely draped on one side by lemon yellow ettringite druse. It is just COLOR. The very tippy-tips are cleaved slightly, but it does not detract from the show value of the specimen at all since it is not readily noticeable.
