An obsolete group name for minerals with the general formula (Mn,Fe)(Ta,Nb) 2 O 6, equivalent to the Tantalite-(Fe)-Tantalite-(Mn) Series.Generally mangan-dominant members are more abundant in nature. Many specimens called tantalite actually belong to the columbite series or tapiolite series. Visit gemdat for gemological information about Tantalite.
Exploration and testing have been carried out by the GTK and several companies. Combining official production data for 1965–2013 with best estimates of older production ( Puustinen, 2003 ), the main feldspar (+ quartz + in some cases small amounts of beryl, columbite, tantalite, etc.) ore-mining regions in Finland are ranked by Puustinen as
mineral “tantalite” whose chemical composition is (Fe, Mn) (Ta, Nb) 2 0 6. This mineral can be identified on the basis of its diagnostic features like: hardness (6), speci-fic gravity (5.2-7.9), lustre (sub-metallic), colour (iron black) and streak (dark red to black). It is generally asso-ciated with niobium (mineral: columbite) and tin in

The mineral group tantalite [(Fe, Mn)Ta 2 O 6] is the primary source of the chemical element tantalum.It is chemically similar to columbite, and the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral called coltan or "columbite-tantalite" in many mineral guides. However, tantalite has a much greater specific gravity than columbite (8.0+ compared to columbite's 5.2).
