PXA5 Fluorite, Pyrite
Huanzala Mine, Huallanca District, Dos de Mayo Province, Peru
3.5x 3.4x 3.4 cm
$1000

A superb pink fluorite, with a yellow core from the Huanzala mine. While sulfide minerals are plentiful from Peru, fluorite has been produced only intermittently. Of these, the pink variety from Huanzala is the most sought after, and since their debut in the early 1980’s, specimens have only rarely been encountered, and very rarely come up for sale. This is a perfect, damage free octahedron resting on a scrap of cubic pyrite crystals. Upon close inspection, numerous glitter-like pyrite microcrystals become visible UNDER the surface of the crystal. This is about as big as these pink Hunanzala fluorite crystals get.
