This Manganese Nodule is from the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone Pacific Ocean. It is a complete nodule.

Manganese nodules are the most widespread undersea ocean mining mineral resource, composed mainly of manganese minerals, and other element resources are found in lumps of various sizes.

Beneath the ocean's surface lie extraordinary formations known as manganese nodules. These fascinating polymetallic nodules are more than intriguing curiosities; they possess immense potential for tech companies. Composed of layers of iron and manganese hydroxides, these nodules hold valuable metals like cobalt, copper, and zinc. But that's not all - they also contain rare earth elements essential for manufacturing cutting-edge electronics.

Some deep-sea mining companies are trying to find ways to mine these valuable nodules, typically found at deep ocean depths, without destroying ocean habitats. Harvesting these highly sought-after metals is a complicated and delicate process.

Collection Site: Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone, Pacific Ocean floor
