Item #6158
$ 1,250
Hubeite, Babingtonite, Quartz and Calcite
Fengjiashan Mine, Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei, China

Although the 3.5 cm tall undamaged quartz crystal and gray, rhombic calcite crystals are the most obvious feature of this miniature, the headliner is the liberal coating of very rare dark brown hubeite crystals. They only occur as micro-crystals from this one (the type) locality. They are also accompanied by black manganbabingtonite micros.

The piece also stands by itself. An aesthetic example of a rare mineral. 3 x 4.5 x 6 cm.
