Little Three Mine, Ramona, San Diego County, California, USA
Miniature, 3.7 x 1.9 x 1.2 cm

This species is really very rare for the locale! In fact, I have not seen another myself. Hambergite in general is rare, and when found at the Himalaya Mine is treasured by collectors locally (I have seen them at prices that would blow your mind, in the past). But this, which actually is a display sized miniature, and with green tourmaline in association, is even MORE rare still than any Himalaya Mine specimen. I never even knew the species occurred at this mine, known for its green tourmalines, topaz, and garnets. I regard it as a fairly important piece
