Kutnohorite, Manganoan Calcite
N'Chwaning II Mine, N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese field, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
A fantastic manganoan calcite with kutnohorite from the N’chwaning II Mine, near Kuruman, in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province! This specimen features hot pink aggregates of manganoan calcite, interspersed with thin, acicular crystals of off-white kutnohorite. The calcite is highly fluorescent under UV light and the arrangement of the crystals is very nice. Ex. Jacques van Den Berg Collection.
