Polymetallic Manganese Nodule Deep Sea Mining Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone
Polymetallic Manganese Nodule Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone, well-defined. The picture to the left with the tag is of the back of the nodule.
Manganese nodules are the most widespread undersea mineral resource, composed mainly of manganese minerals and are found in lumps of up to about 10 centimeters in diameter.
Collection Site: Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone, Pacific Ocean floor
Size: 45mm H X 30mm W X 25mm D
Mineral flecks characteristics.
Rare metals and important elements have been found in manganese nodules discovered on various ocean floor systems throughout the world. The following elements have been demonstrated to be present: manganese, iron, silicon, aluminum, nickel, copper, cobalt, oxygen, hydrogen, barium, potassium, titanium, sodium and traces of a few others. The estimated age of these nodules is approximately 2.5 million years old. Many of the nodules that we have for sale have folds and mammilated (knobby) surfaces that are irregular to smooth in shape and size.
Our manganese nodules were obtained in a scientific materials trade with a university, in 1993. They were originally "mined" by a scientific research expedition vessel to the Pacific Ocean, in 1979, in conjunction with a major university.
This polymetallic nodule ships with a display case, Certificate of Authenticity, tag, and information about the specimen.
NOTE: Stand tag included. Cube and flat base is not included.
A professional XRF elemental assay metallurgical laboratory printout analysis is included with this order. The XRF analysis is consistent with other manganese nodules coming from this fracture zone.
Here is an opportunity to improve your scientific collection with one of the greatest geological wonders from the ocean floor.
