Barite & Hausmanite (Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa)
NÇhwaning 2 Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa. 70mm x 40mm x 40mm.
While Barite is reportedly relativly common from the area it is seldom seen with any of the dealers, this may be to the mining method emplyed we are not too sure but don't often see any Barite from the area. This specimen is associated with multiple small Hausmanites that cover the the specimen from front to back and give it a unique eye catching look.
