Fluorite with Pyrite, Huanzala Mine, Bolognesi, Ancash, Peru Miniature 2.6 x 3.7 x 4.5 cm $1200. Online 3/20
Lovely pastel pink, transparent fluorite perched on pyrite matrix. The fluorite, 3.5 cm on edge, is a complete crystal on all front edges and has only pyrite contact on reverse: it is not cleaved. Form is complex- the transparent, glassy faces are mostly cubic with a couple of octahedral glassy faces...the larger stepped faces are dodecahedrons. In undamaged condition and a very fine miniature from this classic fluorite location. Mined 2012.
