Rarely do I see a hubnerite from this classic mine that makes me stop and stare. Most of them are a bit jaggedly for my taste. Or, they have too much quartz and not enough Hubnerite. This piece has a balanced, gemmy, brilliantly sparkling quartz crystal that accents and balances the crystal itself, pointing in a directing that balances the piece as a whole. It is aesthetic and shiny. This piece is a robust, lustrous, extremely well developed crystal that is complete all around 360 degrees and sharp as you can wish for, from 2012 finds here.
