Manganite With Baryte
Ilfeld, Thuringia, Germany
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.5 x 4.5 cm
SHARP and super lustrous crystals to 1.3 cm, contrast starkly to the Baryte association. This is a beautiful miniature, utterly classic, for these important finds in the mid 1880s. Hard to find one this showy and beautiful, for the price range. Those major crystals, by the way, are not damaged.
