Pasto Bueno District, Pallasca Province, Ancash Department, Peru
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.4 x 3.1 cm
A striking, very aeshetic row of highly lustrous and striated, metallic-gray enargite crystals from the Pasto Bueno District of Peru. The sharp crystals are all fully terminated and pristine. This is an outstanding example of the species and locale, as enargite in this quality is rare from Pasto Bueno, which is much better known for its world-class hubnerite and rhodochrosite specimens. Ex. Tarnowski Collection.
