Miniature, 3.6 x 2.7 x 2.3 cm
Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia
This is a very good specimen of this remarkably rare iron phosphate consisting of wonderful, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, green, layered crystal groups forming a "butterfly"-shaped aggregate of Ludlamite associated with Limonite sitting atop Pyrite matrix. The Ludlamite crystal group measures 9 mm long. There are truly about 5 localities in the world the produce fine crystallized Ludlamite specimens, and all of them, except for Huanuni and now defunct. PLEASE NOTE: There have been no more of these specimens found in the last 6 years from this locality, and it is a possibility there will never be any more.
