Miniature, 5.4 x 1.8 x 1.3 cm
N'Chwaning Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa
A stunning, well-terminated, elongate crystal of sturmanite without damage. It has a muted yellow color to it, as they typically do in shades of yellow-brown-orange. However, it has a phenomenal, almost metallic, luster to it that IS very unusual and gives the surface a sparkle and sheen that is hard to convey in pictures. The crystal is internally bright and has gemmy highlights, It is certainly more translucent in person than it appears here. Comes with custom-mounted lucite base for display.
