Augelite on Quartz
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, La Libertad Dept., Peru
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.3 x 3.2 cm
A rich green, glassy and gemmy augelite crystal measuring 2.2 cm in length (impressive by ANY previous standard for this species from Canada where they are more gray than green!) is surrounded by slender, glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystals, to 1.1 cm in length. Lovely specimen with lots of sparkle, and a big augelite in the middle.
