Item Description

This is a good specimen of this remarkably rare iron phosphate consisting of a wonderful, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, green, layered crystal group of Ludlamite associated with Limonite sitting atop Pyrite matrix. The Ludlamite crystal group measures 6 mm long. There are truly about 5 localities in the world the produce fine crystallized Ludlamite specimens, and ALL of them, except for Huanuni and now defunct. PLEASE NOTE: There have been no more of these specimens found in the last 7 years from this locality, and it is a possibility there will never be any more, so don't miss out on a very good quality piece from a classic Bolivian locality.
