An UNCOMMON, showy and excellent mimetite varietal from Tsumeb. Lustrous, frosted, straw-yellow mimetite crystals to 2.1 cm are jauntily arranged upright on a matrix crust of solid mimetite. The mimetites are accented with unusual and uncommon drusy quartz and are very nicely complimented by a scattering of cerussite crystals, which are also uncommon with mimetite. Ex.
