Alternative definition of the noun manganite

noun

  1. [geology] a dark gray mineral of manganese, MnO(OH), found throughout North America and Europe

Explanation

Manganite is a mineral. Its composition is manganese oxide-hydroxide, MnO, crystallizing in the monoclinic system. Crystals of manganite are prismatic and deeply striated parallel to their length; they are often grouped together in bundles. The color is dark steel-grey to iron-black, and the luster brilliant and submetallic. The streak is dark reddish-brown. The hardness is 4, and the specific gravity is 4.3. There is a perfect cleavage parallel to the brachypinacoid, and less-perfect cleavage parallel to the prism faces. Twinned crystals are not infrequent.
