Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 5.0 x 1.5 cm
N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
This excellent, old-time Inesite from N'Chwaning has a rich brick-red color and superb crystal density all across the face of the specimen. The radial crystals, visible from the sides, have very good luster and range up to about .7 cm in length, making the crust quite thick. An excellent specimen for the species from this classic locale and an old find. It is rarer in this quality from N'Chwaning than from Wessels, and these darker red crystals are highly prized by aficionados of the region. Ex. Charlie Key.
