ID: CC19161
A choice double terminated crystal of Tantalite-(Mn) from the São João del Rei pegmatite province of Nazareno in Minas Gerais, Brazil.  This ex-matrix opaque metallic black crystal has well defined prism faces and good terminations.  The surface is complexly patterned with growth structures, forming concentric stepped faces and micro-etching over the terminations.  Tantalite-(Mn) forms a continuous series with Tantalite-(Fe) and was formerly named manganotantalite.  A very good example of Tantalite-(Mn) from this Brazilian pegmatite.
