Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 4.8 x 3.7 cm
An exceptionally rich and beautiful, old-time, combination specimen from the Mammoth-Saint Anthony Mine at Tiger. Highly lustrous, orange to orange-brown, rounded campylite crystals of mimetite cover all sides of the vuggy matrix and are nicely accented with glassy, colorless, willemite crystals. Mimetite of this quality is rare from Tiger and closely resembles classic, old material from the historic Dry Gill Mine of England. The orange crystals reach 4 mm on this outstanding piece from the Dennis Mullane Collection. Accompanied by an older 1950s-1960s era The Bradleys label. There is a November, 1952 date on the label.
