Surely, this nice round photogenic shape had something to do with it making the cover of Rock & Gem magazine where
they say "a whole new standard is going to have to be accepted for these inesites" in a column about these new
specimens in 1986, that pretty much sum up how good they were then, AND STILL ARE TO THIS DAY. Fresh plump ripe
looking red inesites are relatively scarce from planet earth and the Wessels mine in South Africa is one of the few places
where the manganese-rich silicate crystallize to such extreme size and perfection in adjoining spheres for the species,
primarily seen from this locality.
