Dundasite with Allophane
Juanite Mine, Magdalena
5.8 x 4.2 x 4.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Worldwide mix summer
A vuggy matrix hosts balls of crystalized Dundasite (white acicular needles in spheres) and bright blue and green Allophane. From the Juanita mine, in the famed Magdalena district of New Mexico, this is a moderately rich specimen that has several zones with tiny Dundasite balls. We do not see this material very often, this older piece was in the Hladysz collection.
