Hauerite is a rare manganese sulfide that crystallizes in the cubic system, often producing superb modified octahedrons with cube faces. This relatively large crystal exhibits a matte luster and a chocolate brown color. This is from the best of species locality (a single historic find of the mid 1800s).
