Bolivia's Huanuni mine, situated high in the Andes Mountains in Oruro Department, has produced what are probably the world's best examples of vivianite, the unusual and beautiful iron phosphate mineral. This is an outstanding large example, with gemmy deep-green crystals with superb luster and size, aesthetically placed on a small sliver of gray matrix. For this species and locality, this is about as "good as it gets." A superb example of an unusual and beautiful mineral from a classic locale. Ex . Proctor Family Trust Collection.
