Inesite on Orange Prehnite
Miniature, 5.1 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm
N'Chwaning II Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa
Ex. Charlie Key
This highly unusual specimen is neither an inesite from Wessels nor a prehnite per se, from the small NChwaning find a few years back; but rather a very unusual piece from that pocket of rich red INESITE on the orange prehnite. Inesite wasn't common in this find, certainly not in richly covered specimens like this. It also happens to be a very beautiful and aesthetic miniature inesite, not just a locality piece, as well. On the back, additionally, is a beautiful prehnite display face. REMEMBER THIS IS A NCHWANING INESITE, A NEW CREATURE QUITE DIFFERENT THAN THE WESSELS MATERIAL!
