Pyrochroite- unusually large, sharp crystals
stock #AX-14-388
Kalahari Mn Fields
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2 x 1.7 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $290
Spring 2020

A fine well crystalized example of this rare and usually unattractive specie. From the Scalisi collection, there are just not many of these in existence, this has large somewhat etched and crude crystals with a few tiny rough spots seen with magnification. With very strong (40X) magnification some very tiny Rhodochrosite rosettes and what seems to be Shigaite are spotted. The largest crystal is 1.6 CM across . The habit of this piece on one side looks like the type from Franklin NJ, but the other side looks from the Kalaharie Mn fields. Not a beautiful mineral to most people, but a good example and very hard to find
