Andradite with Calcite
N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.8 x 2.5 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $330
Spring 2014

An unusually good, sizable crystal aggregate of Kalihari Andradite Garnet. The great NChwaning mine is famous for its red colored minerals, especially the Rhodochrosites. Many other less colorful species from here are dusted with tiny bright red Andradites, typically micro crystals. This piece shows well formed distinct and colorful crystals very sizable not like what is usually seen. In excellent condition.
