PRU2 Quartz, Huebnerite, Fucshite
Pasto Bueno, Pallasca Prov., Ancash Dept., Peru
9.6x 3.4x 2.6 cm

A double temrinated cluster of huebnerite crystals, aesthetically perched on a cluster of double terminated quartz crystals. There is also a small amount of light green fuchsite mica, that contrasts nicely with the reddish huebneite. I apologize for the hand in all the pictures, but as this is a longer specimen I did not want to risk it tipping over and hitting the glass table. All in all, this is an excellent, damage free, example of the species from the recent finds at Nuevo Mundo. For the size, this is about as good as it gets for the species.
