- Augelite on Quartz
- Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, La Libertad Dept., Peru
- Miniature, 3.1 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm
This is a very dramatic small miniature or toenail sized specimen. Perched aesthetically on top of a quartz matrix is a glassy and gemmy, bright green augelite crystal measuring 1.8 cm in length. Very minor edge wear on the back of the augelite crystal is barely discernible and is probably contact-induced rather than damage. It displays well from 3 sides, therefore - and looks more like sculpture than anything else here, because of the amazing crystal placement. The crystal has GREAT color, and stands starkly, straight up on contrasting matrix of quartz crystals and massive quartz.
