Here we have a rare pink Boracite specimen from a new find a few months ago in Bolivia. While these specimens are not a new find per se, they are new specimens from a well known locality. Most people are familiar with the Danburites from this locality, but the other staple species found here is Boracite. This piece features a relatively well formed, sharp, pastel orange-pink color modified cube of this hard to find species on matrix. The crystal measures 1.1 cm long. Most often the Boracites from this locality are some shade of blue, and to find pink is rather rare in my experience.
