This specimen hosts a gorgeous flowery cluster of mimetite crystals to 1 cm, gracefully curving in upon themselves, and centered in matrix. It is a very unique piece in overall appearance, to me, and is quite attractive in person. It is very 3-dimensional, and the mimetites are set off so nicely, that it ranks up there as a great mimetite even though the mims themselves are not very large.
