||Braunite (exceptional) with Andradite, Calcite
N'Chwanning111 Mine, Kahlahari Mg Filed,
Kuruman, South Africa
10.2 x 6.5 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
A superb, large, well crystallized plate of this very rare mineral with unusually big and super lustrous crystals. The Braunites are clustered on a matrix that also host some bright, glassy calcite crystals and a few clusters of Andradite. This is simply the best specimen of this mineral I have seen for sale. Braunites reach .8CM size most of which are perfectly undamaged tho there is some chipping best noted with magnification. The overall quality and size for this rare specimen is simply extraordinary.
