Description

Another rarity from the Kalahari Manganese field that I have seen for the first time- came to me in a recently  acquired manganese field collection. The locality is unknown and the collector is not around to question as to its origin.

The barite is similar to another specimen currently on this auction, the pyrite and covering of spikey scalenohedral calcite is striking. Each mineral is effectively portrayed and exposed on the front display face where the calcite coverings are less.

The condition is good despite some bruised areas- the contrasts are magic.
