Alabandite

ID: CC2873

Single crystal specimens of the Manganese Sulphide have recently come out of the diggings in the Merelani Hills, of Tanzania. The crystal we have to offer is a typical partly formed octahedral crystal modified by the cubic face. Lustrous dense grey black colour is seen to the crystal faces. A rare specimen for the location from the recent find.
