Wulfenite, Mimetite
Miniature, 3.9 x 3.3 x 3.1 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A classic cluster of butterscotch-colored wulfenite blades richly dusted with olive-green mimetite botryoids from the Mina Ojuela and the Jaime Bird Collection. The sharp, moderately lustrous wulfenite blades reach 1.8 cm on this fine, two-sided piece. The wulfenites artfully rest on a sturdy gossan matrix. This is a very fine and aesthetic Mina Ojuela wulfenite and mimetite combination piece, with the way the wulfenite blades project vertically. Older material from the early 1960s.
