Very sharp, complete-all-around and well defined crystals for a perfect aesthetics. The most tantalites found in these pegmatite fields are dark-black ferrotantalites while Mn-species are more uncommon in good crystals, and in those already uncommon pieces, a good red color is rare. Custom base included.
