Alabandite with Rhodochrosite from Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru [http://img.irocks.com/new2010/D10156e.jpg]
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 6.4 x 3.9 cm
A single sharp crystal to 1.9 cm, perched atop massive alabandite and accented by a sharp rhodo rhomb, make this an appealing display-quality specimen. THIS IS A VERY SHARP crystal, way above average for this already near-miraculous find for the species. This is one of the sharpest pieces I saw - many crystals approaching this size show etching or cracking on the major surface planes. Not this.
