Huayllapon Mine, Pasto Bueno District, Pallasca Province, Ancash Department, Peru
Despite the abundance of Peruvian sulfides, fluorite from that country remains scarce. This is a cabinet specimen, hosting a single complex crystal measuring 3.1 cm. When viewed head on, the color of the crystal is closest to that of the image at right: it is mostly greenish, with a faintly pink rind. Of course, the color does vary a bit with viewing angle, ranging between what is seen in the photograph at right, and what is seen below.
