I’ve added some superb new specimens on the website in this week’s South Africa Update (click here).
A small pocket at the N’Chwaning II Mine recently produced some exquisite new inesite specimens. These are very sharp and intricate, and in superb condition. I was lucky to have the first chance at these and selected out only a few specimens, the ones I judged to be the best.
This update also includes a couple of hematite specimens, including a brilliant, top, connoisseur-level specimen of ettringite and hematite together, which is ex Marshall Sussman – this is an absolute killer!
And finally in this update I have included some gorgeous green fluorite specimens from Riemvasmaak.
