Hematite with Calcite
Kalahari manganese field, South Africa
Kalahari manganese field, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A very fine hematite twin with calcite from the Kalahari manganese fields, in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province! The hematite exhibits extreme luster and the twinning is very pronounced. The calcite crystal that adorns the front side of the specimen really adds an aesthetic element, as well as a nice contrast of colors. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
