Item Description

Pyrolusite (manganese oxide) is not typically seen in specimens that are actually aesthetic; but this 2008 find in New Mexico was an exception. Here, you see it having formed tightly packed "books" of crystals that together create this shimmering, silvery-grey specimen. This sculptural plate is an exellent representation from the lot we obtained. It looks great in the photos, but is MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!
