Wulfenite, Mimetite
Cabinet, 9.6 x 4.2 x 3.4 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A classic, superb combination specimen from the Mina Ojuela of Mexico. An elongate, 3-dimensional vug in sturdy gossan matrix is filled with translucent, olive-green mimetite botryoids. Beautifully accenting the mimetite is a rich dusting of classic, glassy, "sandwich-style," wulfenite crystals to 5 mm. This excellent specimen dates from finds in the 1960s or early 1980s. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
