This is an exceptional, very rarely found, complete large manganese nodule is from the Pacific Ocean floor. These polymetallic nodules are authigenic deposits composed principally of manganese oxides. They are enriched in Fe and Co, Ni, and Cu.

They occur in all the world's oceans but are generally found in areas where sediment accumulation rate is slow. They often form around a core material, such as a shell fragment or something else.

This is an absolutely premium manganese nodule! It ships with XRF analysis, tag, tag stand, and information about polymetallic manganese nodules with the Certificate of Authenticity. Acrylic display base and photo cube not included.

This specimen was obtained directly from a scientific institution. Manganese nodules are an important focus for possible future mining the ocean floors.

A very fine, complete nodule that makes the perfect display specimen for any serious geological collection.
