Augelite in Quartz

Mundo Neuvo mine, Huamachuco, Sanchez Carrion Province, La Libertad, Peru


Saw this specimen at St Marie-aux-Mines mineral show in 2019 and thought how unusual it was to see Augelite in gemmy crystals.  The dominant Augelite crystal is approx 10x10mm of an attractive pastel green colour accompanied with a couple of lesser crystals nestling in quartz .  Small well formed hubnerite crystals given added interest to the specimen.
