Huallapon Mine, Pasto Bueno, Ancash Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 6.3 x 4.5 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
These famous finds of the 1970's produced some great Huebnerites, and this fits well into that pantheon of terrific specimens. The 4.5 cm Huebnerite is stunning and classic, with its superb luster and sub-parallel bladed growth making for a dramatic termination. The Quartz crystals are excellent, well terminated with a lovely white frosting. Amazingly, only a few Quartz crystals are missing from the whole piece, and that is hardly noticeable among the forest of others. Overall, this is an outstanding specimen from a famous locality, in a size and aesthetic quality har dto find today!
