N'Chwaning II Mine, N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A spectacular stalactitic cluster of brilliant orange Prehnite crystals. The Prehnite blades range from .3-.5 cm, and have superb luster. There is a cluster of well-formed Apophyllites (up to .6 cm) at the base, and a few gemmy clear crystals at the top. A superb toenail from a very rare find - prehnite is not common in the Kalahari fields and this small find of around 2000 attracted a great deal of attention. Ex. Charlie Key stock.
