17PE46 Fluorite
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Prov., Peru
15.7x 9.3x 4.5 cm

A large cabinet specimen of this unusual fluorite from Huanzala.  I suppose it isn't really unusual as far as fluorite goes, but (when it does produce fluorite) this mine typically produces octahedrons or octahedrons with complex cubic modifications and stepped faces. These are tightly packed cubes.  There were only a few of these available-- I only got this piece, as it only had one semi-hard-to-see spot of damage.
