Augelite on Quartz
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, La Libertad Dept., Peru
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.8 x 3.7 cm
This specimen features a phenomenal inch-plus augelite on matrix, standing straight up and showing a perfect complex termination! Perched aesthetically on slender, glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystals, to 1.8 cm in length, are a few glassy and gemmy, bicolored green augelite crystals to 2.9 cm in length. The largest augelite crystal has a pastel green core accentuated by darker green on the crystal edges. A superb example for the species, with very dramatic and upright display qualities.
