Extremely rare! Panasqueraite occurs at only two locations, and these are in the same district. This crystalline, massive Panasqueraite is classic for its habit and tannish-flesh color. The luster is actually very good, and I am told this would be a very rich specimen. The remaining parts of the piece is gray Quartz, bladed but incomplete Wolframite, and Muscovite crystals. This is a first for me to handle, and I am glad to have this extreme rarity. Note the piece is very rich, and could be trimmed into multiple specimens.
