Machacamarca Mine, Machacamarca, Machacamarca District (Colavi District), Cornelio Saavedra Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Miniature, 4.7 x 4.0 x 2.0 cm
These are some of the largest Augelite crystals to hit the mineral market in a long time. This piece features a few fine, sharp, colorless/white crystals of Augelite measuring up to 2.0 cm sitting atop Quartz crystals on matrix. The quality of the Augelite crystals is about average from this mine, but they are some of the larger crystals I've seen from this mine. This rare phosphate mineral is not seen often in any format from any locality. 4.7 x 4.0 x 2.0cm
