LARGE MANGANOCALCITE CRYSTAL
This is an outstanding, very large Manganocalcite crystal. Crystals of this size and habit are very rare. This fine specimen demonstrates the distinctive crystal habit in the crisscross lattice pattern that covers its surface; but best of all are the two fine points in which it terminates. An excellent collector's piece or simply a highly unusual object for the interior designer, it measures 13 1/2 inches long.
