Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 3.2 x 2.5 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, deep green, "flower"-like crystal groups and "sprays" of Ludlamite sitting atop a matrix of cubic Pyrite with minor associated brownish color Siderite. The largest Ludlamite group measures 1.8 cm across, and the color is excellent. There are truly about 5 localities in the world the produce fine crystallized Ludlamite specimens, and all of them, except for Huanuni are now defunct. PLEASE NOTE: There have been no more of these specimens found in the last 6 years from this mine, and it is a possibility there will never be any more. A very attractive and good quality specimen for any collector.
