Ilfeld, Nordhausen, Harz Mts
4.3 x 1.1 CM. (miniature)
The quintessential classic, German Manganite from the Harz Mts. is the best ever found in the world. It is typically found in grouped clusters with a number of xls protruding from matrix,. Even modest specimens are also very expensive. It is highly unusual to find just a single Manganite crystal as in this specimen. Very large for the species and at a reasonable price. Attractive besides, and in perfect condition.
