A rare display specimen of this species: A superb pair of sharp, lustrous Manganocolumbite crystals on white Albite. These rare freestanding Manganocolumbite crystals are euhedral with very good luster. The largest is 2.3 cm, and they form a nice, aesthetic pair as they are connected near the base into a nice 'V'. The Albite is one very large crystal, mostly complete, with a smattering of Quartz and Muscovite. Really, quite an exceptional specimen. Long featured in the various exhibits of the Obodda collection at various shows.
