Rare Gaudefroyite from N'Chwaning II Mine, Northern Cape, South Africa; Rare Gaudefroyite N'Chwaning Thumbnail; N'Chwaning Mineral Specimen


Gaudefroyite from N'Chwaning II Mine, Duruman, Kalahari Manganese Field, Northern Cape, South Africa

A fine thumbnail of Gaudefroyite from the Kalahari Manganese Field of South Africa. This cluster consists of very small sharp jet-black crystals displaying good luster and a lot of sparkle because of the small size and quantity of crystals. Gaudefroyite is an uncommon calcium-manganese borate-carbonate hydroxide and this locality has produced the best of species, and this is a fun little thumbnail example.
