N'Chwanning II Mine, Kalahari Manganese Filed, Northern Cape Province, South Africa
From a new, exciting small find of bright Rhodochrosite from the famed N'Chwanning Mine. This locale is world famed for the great finds made over 20 years ago. Good pieces from the old pockets are now some of the most expensive mineral specimens on the planet. The new zone was very small, it had a similar look (but with some differences) to some earlier finds. The color is a deep pink-red that can be almost electric under some lighting. This is a fine example with distinctive, sharp spheres of bright, sparkling Rhodo. Very good display quality that looks great from several angles.
