Specimens of libethenite from Miguel Vacas mine are seen in the market, but with this size of crystal, brilliance, sharpness and color not really many of them can be find, but rather few. You do not need a magnifying glass to enjoy the pseudo-octahedral crystals of this phosphate. It is accompanied by pseudomalachite, as is usual for the locality, and on a quartz matrix. A first quality one, yes!
