VIVIANITE with Pyrite

Locality: Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia

Specimen Size: 7 x 1.7 x 1 cm (small cabinet)


Vivianite from Bolivia is a tough species to photograph. I tried my best to get the great rich green color and true gemminess of this specimen to come through in the photographs, but this piece looks better in person. I personally acquired this specimen in Bolivia in the Fall of 2000 at the mine at Huanuni. This was one of very few gem Vivianites that I was able to obtain. It is simply a very gemmy, sharp, highly lustrous crystal.

CASSITERITE with Quartz

Locality: Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia

Specimen Size: 11 x 7 x 4 cm (cabinet)


For those who are not familiar with Cassiterite from Huanuni, it is unlike any of the other Cassiterites from Bolivia because these crystals are elongated tetragonal prisms and this is THE BEST Cassiterite specimen I have ever seen from Huanuni. It does not show well in the photographs, but it has fantastic, jet-black, incredibly lustrous crystals associated with minor "milky" Quartz crystals. A great "cabinet" specimen !
