Polymetallic Manganese Nodule, 57426, is from the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone and is an exemplary specimen. It has interesting features, including hummocky billowy features that look like little toes. The pictures are of the front, back, and side. The front and side have these billowy features, with the back partially revealing its interior composition. It is a unique specimen with both classic and exotic forms!
Manganese nodules are the most widespread undersea mineral resource, composed mainly of manganese minerals, and are found in lumps of varying sizes.

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: strategic elements of industry. They include the elements manganese, iron, silicon, aluminum, nickel, copper, cobalt, oxygen, hydrogen, barium, potassium, titanium, rare earths, tellurium, and more. The estimated age of these nodules is approximately 2.5 million years old.
Our manganese nodules were obtained in a scientific materials trade with a major university.
This polymetallic nodule ships in a perky protective case with a Certificate of Authenticity, tag, tag stand, and information about the specimen.
Cube and plexiglass base are not included but are available on Amazon.
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 region.
Here is an opportunity to improve your scientific collection with one of the greatest geological wonders from the ocean floor.
