Tazna Mine (Tasna Mine; Tazna-Rosario Mine), Cerro Tazna, Atocha-Quechisla District, Nor Chichas Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Miniature, 4.2 x 4.1 x 2.3 cm
This material came out around 2001, and was some of the first Augelite from Bolivia in a long time. This piece features a few sharp, highly lustrous, gemmy crystals measuring up to 0.6 cm of Augelite associated with greenish-brown compressed rhombohedra of Siderite with Pyrite on micro Quartz on matrix. This specimen is from the find about 8 years ago, when some of the most impressive Augelites came out of Tazna.
