Miniature, 5.2 x 3.0 x 2.5 cm
N'Chwaning Mines, Kalahari Fields, South Africa

This is a robust, space-filling miniature that exemplifies the qualities of this find: translucency, shimmering surface luster, and unusual tapering form. It has a rich lemon yellow color, graded to the pastel and soft tones but still very yellow. The crystal cluster is complete all around, except a slight matrix bit attached to the back edge. It is hard to explain or convey in pictures, but there is a certain ethereal quality to these specimens that makes the crystals look "soft" and unusual compared to most other large crystalline species. And, this is a rather large example for this species.
