Rhodochrosite with Manganite
N'Chwaning Mines, South Africa
N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese field, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A nice, light pink rhodochrosite specimen with black manganite from the N’chwaning Mines, near Kuruman, in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province! This specimen features a bit of matrix that has been coated with a light pink, botryoidal rhodochrosite, as well as lustrous black manganite. The contrast of the two minerals is striking and the specimen displays well from multiple angles.
