Wessels Mine (Wessel's Mine), Hotazel, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
Large Cabinet, 17.0 x 11.8 x 11.3 cm
An immense LARGE CABINET pink kutnohorite specimen of two intergrown radiating sprays of crystals with smooth, curving terminations/ crowns. This is old material from the Wessels Mine of South Africa and I have seen a lot of it but never something as massive and impressive as this remarkable specimen, for this odd style of crystallization. The back of the specimen has a wild etched appearance, too. Ex. Ludi Von Bezing collection and I value it highly but ....we shall see where it goes! 17.0 x 11.8 x 11.3 cm
