Phenakite (Noumas 2 Pegmatite, South Africa)
Noumas 2 Pegmatite, Vioolsdrift Region, Namaqualand, South Africa. Note the specimen is 15mm in height.
This Phenakite is a self colelcted specimen from the Noumas 2 Pegmatite (also knows as Blesberg). On many visits to the abandoned mine we slowly learned where to look for the Phenakites and on the odd occasion we where lucky. It's clear, perfectly terminated and considered quite large for Phenakite from this locality.
