Manganite on Goethite
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.0 x 2.0 cm
Caland pit, Atikokan, Hutchinson Township, Ontario, Canada

A MAJOR locality Manganite that has unusually blocky crystals for the locale up to 1.7 cm, with razor-sharp edges and excellent luster. The striations, slight overlap, and the way that these sit on the Goethite matrix make this exceptionally aesthetic as a whole, for a black mineral. Certainly one of the best Manganites I have seen from this well-known location, it has been in Marty's private collection for over a decade since a big find here in the 1990s
