Hübnerite is a mineral species consisting of manganese tungstate. It is the manganiferous pole of the wolframite.
We have here a very good lamellar crystal of hübnerite associated with prismatic crystals of hyaline quartz including two tabular crystals presenting two very beautiful macles known as “of Gardette” or “of Japan”.
Gardette macle quartz and hübnerite (wolframite) from Mundo Nuevo, La Libertad, Peru.
