Description

A superb Hubeite specimen. This is a fine, large and impressive plate fully crystallized by sharp transparent Inesites and darker brown red Hubeites. This Hubeite is especially good as it is very sharply formed, densely packed and in much larger than usual crystals. All in all this is showy and damage free which is remarkable for such delicate minerals. Very good condition.
