Description:This was one of the very few matrix pieces from the 2006 find of these amazing specimens. This species was sometimes previously referred to as "Wolframite", which was supposed to be an intermediary species between Ferberite and Hubnerite, but has since been discredited. This is an eye-catching and aesthetic piece featuring a select few fine quality, sharp, lustrous, jet black blades of Ferberite measuring up to 2.5 cm on a "ridge" of matrix. Considering that the large majority of matrix Ferberites from Tasna have serious damage problems, this one is in GREAT shape, as both of the main crystals are damage free. Great balance, aesthetics and displayability. Valued at $500.
