Graftonite is a rare iron-manganese-calcium phosphate that seldom crystallized. When it does, they are usually pretty ugly and these ar eno exception. However, these ARE large, relatively sharp crystals, thus important. Sold as a set, to keep together. Bob regarded these very highly in the collection
