From the 1971 Gem Pocket! A fine specimen from one of Tsumeb's most famous finds. The Mimetites are a beautiful gemmy yellow, showing the long prismatic habit that is so attractive. The two longest crystals are about 1.2 cm long! The shortest crystal is broken, others pristine and intact and glowing like little jewels! This is an excellent matrix thumbnail specimen from an important discovery.
