Widenmann (1794) described strahliger ("radiating") braunstein from "Ilefeld am Hartze." Jameson (1805), in his summary of localities for the "radiating gray manganese ore" and the "foliated gray manganese ore" of Werner, lists "Ilefeld in the Hartz." Breithaupt (1823), in summarizing the manganese oxides, listed among the Ilfeld minerals what he called Weichmanganerz ("soft manganese ore"), meaning the "usual so-called gray braunstein or gray manganerz"; Schwarzmanganerz ("black manganese ore" or Werner's "black braunstein") and Glanzmanganerz ("lustrous manganese ore").
Until 1828, mineralogists customarily used the term "prismatoidal manganese ore" for manganite (Mohs, 1825; Haidinger, 1826)--considering it among other black manganese species including "pyramidal manganese ore" (hausmannite), "brachytypous manganese ore" (braunite), "prismatic manganese ore" (pyrolusite) and "uncleavable manganese ore" ("psilomelane," now discredited in favor of cryptomelane).
