Christian Wilhelm Borée
Christian Wilhelm Borée was born March 26, 1803 in Elbingerode, in the mineral-rich Harz Mountains, Germany, the son of Johanne Friederike Rühe and Johann Samuel Borée. He operated a pharmacy and mineral dealership in Elbingerode. The Natural History Museum in Stockholm has 300 Borée specimens in their collection, exchanged and purchased between 1852 and 1855. Borée was an important (perhaps the main) supplier of the magnificent, now-classic manganite crystal clusters from Ilfeld.
