Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.9 x 3.0 cm
N'Chwaning Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa
This is a very 3-dimensional specimen with 3 large 2-cm, disc-shaped crystals perched atop. It is more impressive even in person because the third crystal is behind the first and shows more readily as you'd look down on the piece compared to a straight-frontal photo. These crystals are pristine and well formed, and show a classic hexagonal form. They are perched attractively on a natrual pedestal of matrix, with smaller accenting crystals, also undamaged.
