Item Description

This is a rare and very interesting example of the manganese-rich variety of diaspore, with large bladed crystals of this unusual, pretty rose-red color for the species. The piece is very rich, and a lot of the smaller crystals are terminated though many of the larger, outer crystals are contacted or incomplete.
