Rarely do I see a hubnerite from this classic mine that makes me stop and stare. Most of them are a bit jaggedly and chaotic for my taste. Or, they have too much quartz and not enough Hubnerite. This piece has a balanced, gemmy, brilliantly sparkling quartz crystal that accents and balances the crystal itself, pointing in a directing that balances the piece as a whole. It is aesthetic and shiny. This piece is a robust, lustrous, extremely well developed crystal that is complete all around 360 degrees and sharp as you can wish for, from 2012 finds here. From the collection of Wally Mann, purchased by him from a Peruvian dealer around 2012.
