San Juan Poniente, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A fine specimen covered with lustrous, pseudocubic, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals from the famous Mina Ojuela at Mapimi, Mexico. Several of the crystals are doubly terminated, including the largest crystal, at 9 mm. The exact mine location is Level 6, San Juan Poniente vein. The gossan matrix has a nice sculptural quality to it and is also partially coated with translucent, apple-green mimetite botryoids.
