Ettringite With Hausmannite
N'Chwaning Mines, Kalahari Fields, South Africa
Miniature, 5.0 x 2.6 x 1.2 cm
This is a very aesthetic, freestanding cluster of several crystals, with an accent of stark black hausmannite in the middle! A superb, showy miniature featuring soft lemon-yellow color, translucency, and a good surface luster for this species. For overall aesthetics in a miniature, this is one of my favorites in this pocket.
