The Wessels Mine of South Africa has probably produced the world's finest specimens of kutnohorite and this is a prime cabinet example. Parallel-growth bundles of pastel-pink kutnohorite blades form an exceedingly sculptural specimen. The central column is particularly striking. The backside also has excellent character. Outstandng pink fluorescence.
