Hubnerite and Quartz, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Labor Yaqui, Huamachuco, La Libertad, Peru, Mined 2009, 3.0 x 4.5 x 5.5 cm, $280. Online 6/2
Beautiful combination of gemmy transparent quartz and high luster deep brown hubnerite. The hubnerite is 'speared' by 2 or 3 sharp quartz crystals. These used to be somewhat plentiful on the market when they first came out but have largely disappeared. Choice miniature from mining 2008 and in great condition.
