Two nanosized Mn49 and Mn25Na4 clusters based on analogues of the high‐spin (S=22) [MnIII6MnII4(μ4‐O)4]18+ supertetrahedral core are reported. Mn49 and Mn25Na4 complexes consist of eight and four decametallic supertetrahedral subunits, respectively, display high virtual symmetry (Oh), and are unique examples of clusters based on a large number of tightly linked high nuclearity magnetic units. The complexes also have large spin ground‐state values (Mn49: S=61/2; Mn25Na4: S=51/2) with the Mn49 cluster displaying single‐molecule magnet (SMM) behavior and being the second largest reported homometallic SMM.
