15PR13 Ferberite with Quartz
Pasto Bueno, Pallasca Prov., Ancash Dept., Peru
5.3x 5.0x 5.5 cm
$490

An exceptionally sharp crystal of ferberite, with quartz.  These things tend to have very fine edges that are chipped about 98% of the time-- this one is perfect and displays a deep red color around the edges with minimal lighting.

The crystal is very well exposed, and a cut above the more plentiful Mundo Nuevo pieces that hit the market a few years back.  The ferberite crystal is thicker, has better color, and the quartz adds to the specimen's appearance, rather than hiding the focus of the specimen-- if you've seen the Mundo Nuevo material, you'll know what I mean.
