Pink Fluorite
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Province, Huanuco Department, Peru
Miniature, 5.3 x 3.6 x 2.5 cm
ex. Irv Brown Collection This is a phenomenal miniature from the one most famous fluorite pocket of Peru, from the fall of 1981. After 25 years of being out in the collecting community, most specimens are still safely in collections and these are very SELDOM on the open market. This is as fine a miniature as any I have seen come about, with spectacularly gemmy crystals of a pink color, characteristic of this pocket. The aesthetics are good, with all crystals showing faces towards the display face and the few minor contacts relatively hidden from view. These have stood the test of time, with no more such crystals being found since.
