Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 5.4 x 4.0 x 2.4 cm
Out of hundreds of specimens, literally only a very few had nice sharp isolated crystals such as this piece, which is overall an elegant miniature to boot. I know its expensive, but when you take into account how rare this habit was in the find, that it seems to me most desirable, and that this matrix specimen is overall more aesthetic than most of its more "chunky" brethren, this explains the premium placed upon the specimen. This is certainly a world class example of the species.
