PL05 Hubnerite with Quartz
Mundo Nuevo District, Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
6.7x 5.1x 5.4 cm
$485

Another specimen of huebnerite, this one from the recent workings of the last few years.  

 

This piece is damage free, and consists of multiple blocky, sharply terminated crystals with numerous quartz points interspersed among them.

 

Operations at this mine were once much larger in scale, though key parts of the site were blown up by Shining Path guerillas in the early 1990's.  The site was then abandoned until the specimen recovery project in 2008.
