One of the most interesting features of the Jabuka Pit, a depression up to 275 m deep in the Central Adriatic is the presence of ferromanganese crusts and coatings found on various mollusks shells, shell fragments and other biogenic detritus exposed to seawater. They are composed mostly of Fe-poor and Mg-rich 10 Å manganates. 10 Å manganates also form collomorph-banded and botryoidal aggregates, as well as 1.5 mm high stalactitic structures composed of up to 5 µm long plate-like crystals. Their hydrogenous precipitation at the sediment- water interface in oxygenated conditions is hypothesised.
