Large Cabinet, 17.0 x 11.8 x 11.3 cm
Wessels Mine (Wessel's Mine), Hotazel, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
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
