Barite on Rhodochrosite
stock #AX-27-255
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
3.7 x 2.1 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $90
new year 2021

Thin glass-clear undamaged Barite crystals on a minimal matrix of Rhodochrosite and tiny Barites. A very clean and attractive small miniature with no damage. The Cerro Warihuyn find of Barites is simply incredible, there have been many choice pieces in several habits and colors. This specimen is a very pale yellow-green hue in the Barites which are perfectly transparent and seem almost colorless in person. These Barites are still an excellent value for quality and esthetics at a reasonable cost.

Apatite (Apatite CaF) with Pyrite

Huanzala Mine, Huallanca district
Huanuco Department, Peru
6.6 x 4.7 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
new year 2021

Dozens of tabular Apatite crystals are clustered on a contrasting crystallized Pyrite. These Apatites are a pale pink to violet color and vividly fluorescent. In choice condition, this specimen was collected in 2010 in what seemed to be a small but impressive find. The Huanzala Mine is famed for the incredible Pyrites and Fluorites that it has produced over the years. There have been a few small finds of Apatites however each discovery has been very different in terms of habit, color and form.

In fine condition, the front or main face is clean and undamaged, there is contacting on the back and outer side edges that is not seen on display. Impressive specimen of this usually non-esthetic Sulphide specie, Very choice for the locality and a fine Tetra from anyplace.

Barite on Dolomite and Rhodochrosite
stock #AX-12-503
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
10.9 x 7.9 x 6.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $725


A fine cabinet specimen that is far beyond the average Barite from Cerro Warihuyn. The Barite is a smoky golden color, very clear and mostly all transparent. The matrix is a mix of Dolomite and Rhodochrosite which adds a nice pink contrast. A few tiny dark Sulphide crystals are noted too, but they are minor in the composition. The free standing Barites are very fine for this important locality, 4.7 CM across with nice zoning. No damage to note except a small chip on the backside of the Barite that is not visible from any logical display angle. The presentation side is in perfect condition. Far better in person. This locale had produced lots of Barite and is world renown for them, this specimen is exceptional compared to the vast majority of the find.

Glass clear Barite blades in perfect condition sitting on crystallized pink Rhodochrosite. From the prolific finds at Cerro Warihuyn, which produced some of the best Barites found in decades- esthetic, attractive and very affordable. There are a lot of these on the market but this is well above the average miniature, way better in person. The locality is supposedly almost exhausted, which will be a great loss to the mineral world!
