Hematite with Calcite (Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa)
Wessels Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa. 60mm x 30mm.
GThis is a outstanding classic from Wessels, specimens of this nature do not come around that often. The silver hematites are offset with the white calcites on the manganese matrix. Wessels was recognised world wide for the specimens when they where found, today it's a matter of hunting down the odd specimen on line as these are no longer coming out. Packed shipping weight +/- 160gr.
