Photo's description:
Rhodochrosite Locality: N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa (Locality at mindat.org) Size: thumbnail, 16.14 x 9.11 mm ; 5.01 carats Rhodochrosite These are some of the most recognizable Rhodochrosites in the world for their distinct and vivid flame red color. The N'Chwaning mines along with the Sweet Home mine are the two premier localities for Rhodochrosite in the world. Even though the Sweet Home mine has produced some rather large gems, N'Chwaning rarely forms crystals large enough to cut gems this size. This stone is one of the finest gems from this locality that I have had in my hands in a long time. The color is as intense as Rhodo gets from N'Chwaning. The gem has a Marquise cut, and is only very very slightly included, which is to be expected in a gem this size. A truly impressive collector quality Rhodo gem that would make for a superb "rough and cut" set with a specimen from this mine.
