SOLD Dendrites- Manganese Oxides on Limestone
Blumenberg, Eichstatt, Eichstatt District, Upper Bavaria
Bavaria, Germany
19 x 13 x 1.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


A flat Limestone slab with fine, well detailed dendrites on both sides. From the limestone Quarry at Eichstatt in Bavaria, this old locality is famed for Jurassic age fossils but also for excellent dendrites. from the Les Hitchings collection, obtained in 1987 the slab is sawn on 4 edges but rough natural on the faces. The original label for this refers to the dendrites being Pyrolusite but in fact this is wrong, it is not uncommon for these to be composed of other Manganese oxides, sometimes a mix of species such as Coronadite, Birnessite, Romancheite etc. No matter the specie (which is complex to determine) this is a very attractive, delicate and highly detailed display of branching dendrites much like an artist's rendering.
