This incredibly bright and lustrous manganite from Ilfeld, Harz Mountains, Germany features two sizable crisscrossing prismatic, striated crystals - the larger of which measures 1-1/2"L x 3/4"W - rising above a bed of smaller, dazzlingly shiny manganite crystals. This specimen is 100% undamaged and aesthetically striking from every angle, and comes from a pocket discovered in Germany in the mid-1880s. It is a true display piece. Prior to WWII this specimen was on display in the Budapest Museum. It is both ex. Richard Kostner collection and ex. Wally Mann collection. This is a world-class example of the manganite species and with its pedigree the knowledgable collector will simply not be able to pass it up.

Dimensions: 2-1/2"W X 2-1/8"D x 2-3/8"H , Weight: 260 g
