Item Description

An extremely rare and seldom available combination specimen from Pasto Bueno. One side of the parallel-growth cluster of splendent hubnerite crystals is preferentially and totally covered with nubby, native arsenic crystals. Scattered arsenic crystals are seen on the rest of the piece and are a few nifty, tiny quartz crystals. Complete all-around and nearly pristine, with only a couple of broken hubnerite crystal terminations. Ex Josef Vajdak Collection. A must for the species or locality collector. I have never seen such a piece
