Poldervaartite, Quartz
Large Cabinet, 25.0 x 15.0 x 5.0 cm
N'Chwaning II Mine, N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A STUNNING and DRAMATIC LARGE CABINET plate festooned with lustrous, salmon-pink poldervaartite crystals on sparkly quartz from the famous Nchwaning II Mine. This was a freak find that redefined what you could get for the species, around 5 years ago. No more has come out since.
