Sammy Dog Mine (Hillside Mine; Ironwood Mine; God's claim), Silver Bell District, Silver Bell Mts, Pima Co., Arizona, USA
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.6 x 1.6 cm
Ex. Harold Urish
This is a rare specimen, the first I have personally seen, of material I could only find referenced in an Arizona Bureau of Mines report. Harold Urish self-collected this in 1999 at the so-called God's Claim, here. It features unusual, acicular crystals of mimetite on a background of green mineralization which, according to that report, as summarized on MINDAT, may be descloizite or bayldonite. Ex. Harold Urish Collection.
