Wulfenite, Mimetite
Miniature, 4.5 x 2.6 x 1.3 cm
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A classic Mina Ojuela specimen of four lustrous, blocky to tabular, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals very aesthetically set on sturdy gossan matrix richly covered with starkly contrasting, olive-green mammillary mimetite. This fine piece probably dates to the famous 1968 find. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection.
