N'Chwaning 2 Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa. 90mm x 50mm x 80mm.
Normally we would not put something like this on the site but we would like to draw your attention to the 2nd picture. Under SW UV lights this specimen glows a lovely deep pink colour. Calcites from the Kalahari Manganese Fields generally do, this specimen is very striking due to the sheer size of it. This will be great fun for the UV collectors.
