17PE05 Augelite on Quartz
Ortega Claim, Huamachuco, Sanchez Carrion Province, La Libertad Dept., Peru
5.1x 3.8x 3.5 cm
$650

A beautiful miniature example of augelite on quartz, with a particularly good overall configuration.  To begin with, the piece is a floater, composed primarily of two doubly terminated qurtz crystals arranged in a V-like cluster.  There are a number of smaller secondary quartz crystals, but right front-and-center, clinging to the main quartz crystals, is a light green augelite crystal.  While the color is admittedly a bit on the lighter side, the position and aesthetics of the piece set it well above the standard mess of quartz crystals with augelites randomly interspersed among them.
