A large, fine plate of gemmy and lustrous Poldervaartites from N'Chwaning. These gemmy crystals range in color from peach to tannish-yellow, but what is extraordinary, besides the sheer number of crystals, is the fact that there are two distinct habits. There are both radial clusters and single blocky crystals that range up to about 1 cm in size. Ex. Charlie Key.
