A fabulous specimen with a large Hausmannite, 35mm tall with Calcite and Manganvesuvianite deposited too.

in 2003 a pocket of Hausmannite was found at the N'Chwaning II mine, on either side of this specimen you have two different coloured Calcite crystals, possibly 2 generations. Mostly on the underside you have high lustre bronze coloured crystals of Manganvesuvianite too 5/6mm. This is a very good specimen and the Hausmannite is exceptionally large with a gunmetal-like lustre. There is a couple of very minor abrasions but for a crystal of this size, it is certainly acceptable.

Size: 3.5 x 3.2 x 2.6cm

Locality: N'Chwaning II, Kalahari Manganese Field, Northern Cape, South Africa
