Kutnahorite on Rhodochrosite
N'Chwaning Mine, near Kuruman, South Africa
Cabinet, 13.6 x 6.1 x 2.3 cm
A rich plate of unusually rich pink rhodochrosite, much more pink than red as is common from the mine. On it are perched little bowties of the rare species kutnahorite, which is a true pastel pink here. Very pretty contrast, and overall a very pretty (and large) specimen for the price!
