From the premier locality for Manganite EVER, from a find in the mid 1880's, this piece is a very sculptural and eye-catching display specimen with excellent quality: relatively large, sharp, lustrous, black crystals of Manganite jutting out of a massive Manganite matrix. The piece is jet black, lustrous, and not a "dark ugly" - actually very attractive. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
