Manganotantalite
Shengus (Shingus) Haramoush Mts. Skardu District
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
3.3 x 2.4 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $290
Dec 2018

Blocky type crude crystals of Manganotantalite in a cluster that show the red-brown color very well. An older piece from Skardu that has several intergrown crystals these are in quite good condition and most of the faces have very clear striations. Typically this specie has rounded, crude form crystals, often indistinct especially as they get larger. However this is a good deal sharper than most and there is only one spot with a very small contact, otherwise complete on all sides, a floater specimen.
