A super cute and RARE thumbnail combination from this less well-known Mundo Nuevo area mine, that closed in 1974. A striking trident of water-clear, gem, lustrous tapered quartz points with nifty stepped-growth faces, to 2.8 cm, dramatically guard a sharply terminated 2.0 cm hubnerite crystal. The smaller quartz points and hubnerites attached at the base add pizzazz to this adorable 360-degree piece. Bright light reveals classic hints of red in the hubnerite crystals. Two of the three quartz points and the hubnerite are pristine. You can barely see the slight bruise to the tip of the large central quartz point. It was purchased from the well-known Zweibels of Mineral Kingdom in June, 1984. SELDOM available in this quality today.
