description: LOCALITY: Wessels III Mine, Kuruman, Northern Cape Province, South Africa 3" across I acquired this piece during one of my visits to Johannesburg in late 2009 while en route to Lubumbashi in Katanga province. This is only one of two high quality matrix specimens of olmeite that I know of. The olmeite hemisphere is perched on a well proportioned, bright white matrix which contrast with the olmeite in terms of color, texture and luster. The luster of the olmeite hemisphere is high. The color is also pale salmon orange in daylight (illustrated) and red under artificial light.
