LUDLAMITE on Pyrite from Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia [./BolivianUpdatesOLD/bltd25luda.jpg] LUDLAMITE on Pyrite from Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia [./BolivianUpdatesOLD/bltd25ludd.jpg] LUDLAMITE on Pyrite from Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia [./BolivianUpdatesOLD/bltd25ludb.jpg] LUDLAMITE on Pyrite from Huanuni mine, Huanuni, Dalence Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia [./BolivianUpdatesOLD/bltd25ludc.jpg]


No. BLTD 25 LUD - SOLD

LUDLAMITE on Pyrite

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

Specimen Size: 8.5 x 8 x 3.5 cm (small cabinet)
Largest crystal group: 1.6 cm.


This is, in my opinion, the single best "cabinet" size specimen in the lot. There are several, excellent, sharp, lustrous, deep-green crystal "sprays" of Ludlamite on this specimen with an association of Sphalerite and an unusual, modified rhombic crystal of yellowish Siderite on the reverse side of the specimen. This is a fantastic piece for any collector who is looking for a larger Bolivian Ludlamite.

LUDLAMITE on Pyrite

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

Specimen Size: 6 x 4.5 x 2.5 cm (small cabinet)
Largest crystal Group: 1.8 cm.


This is another unusual specimen from this find. It has an interestingly large, lustrous, green "spray" of Ludlamite on a matrix of Pyrite (some primary, some are pseudomorphs) with spherical Siderite crystals. It has great contrast, color and aesthetics.

LUDLAMITE on Pyrite

Specimen Size: 3.5 x 2.3 x 2 cm (miniature)
Largest crystal group: 1 cm.


Sharp, lustrous, aesthetic, gemmy, green crystals of Ludlamite covering cubic Pyrite crystals. It is especially unique because of the "rabbit-ear" shaped crystals at the top of the specimen. This is an excellent piece with some really choice quality Ludlamites.
