Though possessing very small Manganite crystals, this Canadian specimen has hundreds of them! As a matter of fact, there is one tiny spot of matrix material that I can see on the piece; it's almost pure Manganite! The crystals form a crust on one part of the specimen that is almost 1/2 " thick, and they seem to average about 1mm in diameter! They have the black color and bright, submetallic luster characteristic of their locality's yield. One will get the most Manganite in this specimen.
