Augelite on Quartz
Miniature, 4.6 x 3.8 x2.9 cm
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, La Libertad Dept., Peru

An important and dramatic miniature: Aesthetically nestled among slender, glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystals to 1.1 cm in length are two glassy, gemmy, bicolored green augelite crystals, to 1.3 cm in length. The bodies of the augelite crystals are a light apple-green with the edges a more intense bright green color but overall this piece has augelite of the deepest green hue you can ask for from the find. This specimen is a perfect miniature, with two superb crystals standing right on top as if placed there.
