Item Description

These are some of the best Augelite crystals to hit the mineral market in a long time. This piece features dozens of fine, sharp, colorless, translucent/gemmy crystals of Augelite measuring up to 5 mm associated with blocky white Barite, plus minor octahedral Pyrite and Quartz on matrix. The quality and size of the Augelite crystals is good for the locality. There are few localities in Bolivia that produce Augelites like this. This rare phosphate mineral is not seen often in any format from any locality.
