Peru, La Palomo Mine

The La Palomo Mine has been a source of well crystallized sulphides and sulphosalts for a few years now. Nice clusters of galena and quartz, associated with less common minerals like tetrahedrite, sphalerite, anorpiment, seligmannite and realgar are currently being revealed to the world!
