ID: CC19160
An excellent orthorhombic crystal of Tantalite-(Mn) from the São João del Rei pegmatite province of Nazareno in Minas Gerais, Brazil.  An ex-matrix 2.5 cm opaque metallic black crystal with a 1.2 cm long crystal attached to one side.  Tantalite-(Mn) forms a continuous series with Tantalite-(Fe) and was formerly named manganotantalite.  Tantalite mineralisation is often associated with complex pegmatite bodies and this is a terrific example of the species.
