Caryopilite on Rhodochrosite
Caryopolite on Rhodochrosite from Kalahari Manganese Field
This caryopilite on rhodochrosite rough mineral comes from the N'Chwaning mine, Kalahari Manganese Field in South Africa. Caryopilite is a brown coloured mineral which forms as a product of metamorphism in manganese bearing minerals such as rhodochrosite. Caryopilite on rhodochrosite is quite rare so we're very happy to have this little piece as part of our collection.
