Hedyphane on Calcite
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
7.8 x 4.7 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
new year 2021

A rich and fine specimen of rarely seen specie from a find in the late 1960 era. Lustrous, bright yellow Hedyphane crystals are clustered in radiating groups and tufts on Calcite. The San Carlos Mine has had some sporadic and typically small discoveries of fine minerals over the last 70 years. Most recently were the world class Vanadinites found in 2018. Hedyphane is quite rare here, it is known mostly in nice micro crystals but almost no "naked eye" specimens exist. This piece is an exception with clearly visible sparkling crystals on a large area. For any suite of Mexican, Lead, or San Carlos minerals this is a very nice addition. From the Ruth and Andy Palmer species collection that was gathered in collaboration with Dr. Joe Manderino.
