Summary[edit]

Description
English: Ettringite
Locality: N'Chwaning I Mine, N'Chwaning Mines, Kuruman, Kalahari manganese fields, Northern Cape Province, South Africa (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: miniature, 5.2 x 3 x 2.5 cm
Ettringite
This is a robust, space-filling miniature that exemplifies the qualities of this find: translucency, shimmering surface lustre, and unusual tapering form. It has a rich lemon yellow color, graded to the pastel and soft tones but still very yellow. The crystal cluster is complete all around, except a slight matrix bit attached to the back edge. It is hard to explain or convey in pictures, but there is a certain ethereal quality to these specimens that makes the crystals look "soft" and unusual compared to most other large crystalline species. And, this is a rather large example for this species.
