Rhodochrosite
Rhodochrosite. Rhodochrosite.

Recorded under LED light
 

TE16AN2: A historical piece, since the first 'top' Rhodochrosites from the Kalahari area were found in Hotazel before they were also found in N'Chwaning.
It is a druse of very sharp and well separated scalenohedral crystals, between transparent and translucent, lustrous and with a very intense and uniform color. A magnificent classic of African mineralogy in which some crystals have cleavages, something very difficult to avoid in specimens of this type and size, although it does not affect the general aesthetics of the piece, considering its global quality.
The specimen has been reviewed, photographed and published in the magazine ‘Mineral Up’ on page 42 of the 2020/02 edition.
