Description

Aesthetically nestled in a bed of colorless, transparent quartz crystals, are several lustrous, blocky, black hubnerite crystals. The luster, color and sharpness are superb with chisel-shaped faces. Much better in hand and despite some minor quartz needles broken, it stands above all the Peruvian hubnerites I've ever seen.
