N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
5.3 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
A single bright and well formed crystal of Olmiite is nicely perched on the Manganese matrix. Fine condition and well presented, this is a nice single crystal (1.2 CM) on matrix that shows great color, form and luster well. Not just a ball this has well defines crystal faces unlike most specimens. This find has produced many forms of this rare mineral, it is a great time to get examples of this esthetic specie while they are still affordable.
A sharp, elegant slender scepter from the southern Indian area where the Amethyst flowers are found. This scepter has a very slight hint of purple to it (but it is slight) and is really a wispy smokey on top of a clear contrasting shaft. It is the best and largest scepter I have seen from the locality and is a fine piece from anyplace! Nice, distinct striations and fantastic form, in nearly perfect condition. There are 2 micro chips best seen with the help of magnification, everything else is pristine and it displays well. For any suite of quartz or Indian minerals this is a super specimen with textbook form!
