Description:The Japan-Law twin Quartz specimens from this mine are well known in the mineral world, and this piece is a nice example of said material. The specimen hosts a predominant, sharp, lustrous, beautiful, very gemmy, colorless Japan-Law twin of Quartz measuring 5.1 cm across along with a few partial Japan twins and dozens of prismatic, sharp, gemmy Quartz crystals on matrix. The overall quality is very good for the material from this locality. Additionally, there is composite group of dark reddish-black Hubnerite on the piece which measures 1.8 cm. Siglo XX is one of the most impressive Bolivian localities hands down for the diversity of minerals and the quantity of specimens produced for over a century. It is the type locality for many "best in the world" species, and it even produces some amazing specimens of common species like Quartz. Valued at $800 in the inventory.
