Y1602 Hubnerite on Fluorite with Quartz
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Mundo Nuevo, Sanchez Carrion Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
18.0x 12.7x 10.0 cm
$3800

A beautiful and unusual combination specimen of lustrous ferberite on light pink and white fluorite, with quartz. These were found 4 to 5 years back-- the fluorites from this find were almost always highly etched, and combined with the placement of the ferberites, most I saw had a messy appearance and lack of focal point. 

This one though, is fairly well put together.  The fluorite is etched, but the general octahedral  form of the large crystal forming matrix is easily discerned.  The ferberites are sharp, damage free, and nicely spaced out, and are accented by the very transparent quartz needles.
