ID: CC31846
This small cabinet specimen has a rich coverage of the calcium-manganese sorosilicate Hubeite over a divergent cluster of very attractive Quartz crystals. This is from Fengjiashan mine in Daye County, Hubei Province, China, the type locality of Hubeite. The Quartz forms translucent crystals which grade to reasonably gemmy terminations, all with a smoky hint. The Hubeite forms as translucent chocolate brown micro-crystals scattered over the Quartz crystals; however the highest concentration is across the base and the underside of the largest Quartz crystal. An aesthetic and great example of Hubeite from its type locality.
