From the newest find at Cerro de Concordia, a pretty spray with distinct sceptering of the main crystal. Bright, colorful and undamaged with attractive form. There are some tiny orange flake-like inclusions as well.
Olmiite with Calcite
N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman
9 x 6.8 x 6 CM (cabinet)
A large and esthetic 3-D cluster of Olmiite in "wet look" aggregates with a pinkish color. Far better that the average, this is an even more special specimen due to the well placed clear clusters of Calcites in parallel growth. The calcite is in doubly terminated prisms that look very much like quartz and have similar glassy luster. Olmiite was unknown as a mineral until 2006, it is only found at this one location worldwide. This piece displays well, is undamaged and presents from several angles.
