ID: CC2050

An attractive specimen of Manganite from the type location of Ilfeld, Germany. Slender prismatic crystals with bright metallic lustre have grown from the matrix in different directions. Most crystals measure approx 1mm wide, and up to 1.1cm in length, but there are several thicker crystals measuring to 1.5cm width and 20mm length. White Baryte crystals are intergrown with the Manganite, adding nice contrast. The specimen is not pristine, with only a few crystals still showing terminations; but it has the pedigree, likely donated to the Academy in the early 1800s, ex. T. F. Moss collection, and is a good representation from this location.
