Tantalite is the main source of the metal Tantalum, which is both very hard and very rare. It is sought after for its many practical applications in industry. It has a melting point of 3,000 degrees Celsius and its heat resistance and its natural resistance to corrosion make it desirable to the automotive industry and the aerospace industry. Its use in developing more efficient satellite and rocket technology is surely set to rise in the future.
Despite the ever growing demand for Tantalum, very little Tantalite is actually mined. It also remains that the metal Tantalum is very difficult to extract from the ore Tantalite.
These pieces come from Brazil which has around 52% of the worlds reserve of Tantalite. It is widespread though with Tantalite also being found in China, Africa, Russia, Canada and Australia.
These are irregular shaped pieces with some matrix of perhaps, ironstone or sandstone, still present.
A rare stone indeed.
