Hi Sante, I don't think this is the beginning of a pseudomorphosis. I have often seen this kind of sturmanites from N'Chwaning and I think it's a common form of this mineral from the locality. It's just that not all sturmanites are yellow ;-)

Regards
Tobi

Thank you, Tobi.

Following your information, I saw in Mindat several Sturmanites with the same color as mine.
Nevertheless, Mindat itself attributes to this mineral the color "bright yellow to amber".
Now, if the hazelnut color is relatively common, why not mention it among the typical colors of the species?
I suspect that this color is due to an alteration.

My warmest greetings.
Sante

Check out photo FQG-09W on Mindat. Bruce Cairncross has good commentary on the color as well as a reference to an article in Min. Rec where there is thorough research on these. I got a specimen in the late '80's that is brown and definitely not with clear faces. It resembles what Bruce describes of what came out in that period, and he raised the thought that there might be some darkening due to dehydration.

Hello.

I start sharing the samples from the third shelf of the first of my five showcases dedicated to minerals from all over the world.
Since this shelf is not glass but wood, I was able to accommodate fifteen larger and heavier specimens here.
I hope you find them interesting.

Warmest greetings.
Sante
