Description

Good pyroxmangite specimen from this classic Japanese locality. It comes with good lustre all over the specimen. Locally, it displays good red color and even some slightly transparent bits of very good quality. Rather sizeable for this quality as well, Japanese pyroxmangite is rather hard to find on the market.
Recently acquired during the Denver show, it was field collected a few years ago by a Russian systematic collector.
