- Ilfeld, Harz Mts., Germany
- Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.0 x 2.5 cm
Clustered together in an aesthetic manner are long prismatic, highly lustrous, black manganite crystals to 2.6 cm in length> These specimens came out in the 1880s and are still world classics, to this day! Most of the best of species would have come from this find. While many specimens exist, still to this time, this is a particularly elegant example in its size range, and priced fairly for the good impact it gives on the shelf. It displays vertically in a custom base and has mesmerizing detail and intricacy as you look up close. Aesthetic, not clunky like most, and a gorgeous small cabinet piece.
