Item Description

A classic Hubnerite specimen from the well known Adams mine in Colorado. This mine is essentially known for these specimens specifically, but they are still among the best and most popular for the species from all of Colorado. Hundreds of beautiful, foliated, sharp, lustrous, deep brownish-red, tabular striated crystals of Hubnerite comprise this attractive display piece. The largest Hubnerite crystal measures 2.2 cm long. The piece was mined by San Juan miner Max Gallegos in 1971. Specimens such as this are not readily available these days, and for the quailty, size and overall displayability, it is certainly a very good cabinet specimen of this well known material.
