Hubnerite, Quartz

Hubnerite, Quartz

Specimen # 100255
Mineral: Hubnerite, Quartz
Location: Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, Sanchez Carrion Province, La Libertad Dept., Peru
Size: 10.0 x 6.7 x 3.4 cm
Price: $200.00 CAD

Quantity:

To me, this combination piece is more about the quartz than the hubnerite - the quartz is special. First, this piece is almost entirely pristine - which is totally remarkable given its complexity and size. There are a couple missing crystals and a couple of nicks to quartzes but they you have to search hard for them - this thing looks perfect. There is a quartz twin (twinned on the Japan Law) in the middle of the piece, in amongst all the jumbled crystals - its longer point measures 2.3 cm (in fourth photo). This piece is a floater - there are no points of attachment. The hubnerites meaure up to 1.0 cm and are undamaged. On close examination under strong light, some internal red colour is visible in spots, but these hubnerites look black to the eye. This is a beautiful display piece!
