SOLD
An excellent, OLD-TIME cluster of highly lustrous, striated, jet-black manganite prisms on massive manganite matrix. These old pieces came out in about 1886-1888 (per Bancroft's book). This fine piece is impressive from both sides. Superb crystals, large overall size, and high luster make this an excellent small cabinet piece.
