Specimen # 200734
Mineral: Epidote
Location: Rosario Mabel Claim, Pampa Blanca, Castrovirreyna Province, Huancavelica Dept., Peru
Size: 10.8 x 7.0 x 6.5 cm


A large fan of lustrous epidote crystals, with intergrown smaller fans, from Pampa Blanca. The epidote crystals are very dark green, and there are many sparkling terminations up the front of the fan. In excellent condition overall, with a few incomplete crystals. From the front (first three photos) one is viewing the largest fan and optimal viewing angle, including the best lustre. The fourth and fifth photos are from the side (left-hand side, in the first photo) and the last photo is from the back. From the Gerald Panneton collection, this is an impressive display specimen!
