New Find of Alabandite

In 2010 the mineral world was astounded by a new find of Alabandite from the Uchuchacua Mine in Peru.  Never before had Alabandite been found in crystals so large, with crystals up to 2.5 cm, as previously only sub 1cm crystals were known.  Now, just a few years later, get ready to be astounded again at a new find of even larger crystals, significantly larger. Merelani has produced the world's best crystals of many other species, and now we can add Alabandite to the list, with large black crystals to at least 6cm.
