Augelite and Quartz
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, La Libertad Dept., Peru
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.5 x 1.7 cm
A sculptural and dramatic miniature, this Augelite is aesthetically nestled among slender, glassy and gemmy, colorless Quartz crystals. The Augelite is gemmy, bicolored, lustrous, and 1.1 cm in size. The bodies of the Augelite crystals are a saturated apple-green color with the edges a more intense, deeper green color. This color is as good as it gets from the famous finds of 2012-2014. This specimen is a wonderful miniature, with the single Augelite perfectly placed among the Quartz crystals.
