Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.6 x 4.0 cm
Goethite comes in all sorts of forms, including some very boring ones - but while this may not be the paragon of beauty in the mind of some collectors these Mapimi goethites are certainly anything but boring. This is a rich piling up of silky black botryoidal forms, pretty much solid goethite, with a little quartz attached. Does not look quite like anything else!
