These specimens are mostly single crystals of augelite, an aluminum phosphate mineral. A few pieces have a minor amount of quartz or other matrix with them. They are all in the thumbnail size range. Most are nearly euhedral and many have no obvious point of attachment. These are mounted on a small acrylic base with mineral tac which can be easily removed if desired.
Augelite, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Santiago De Chuco Province, La Libertad Department, Peru
CR2310: Augelite, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Peru. 1.5 cm x 1.6 cm x 1.0 cm, 1.7 grams. $15.
A nice sharp crystal with excellent color.
CR 1563: Quartz, Pasto Bueno, Peru: 8.2 cm x 4.0 cm x 3.7 cm, 107 grams. $35. A nice small cabinet combo with abundant sulfides. Contacted on the bottom and back. I considered sawing off the base of this and can do that if you would prefer it that way to make it stand better and get rid of a little of the excess quartz at the base.
