Wulfenite, Mimetite
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 6.0 x 3.9 cm
San Juan Poniente, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Lustrous, bi-pyramidal, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals are festooned on this fine, sculptural and 3-dimensional specimen from the Mina Ojuela at Mapimi, Mexico. Crystals reach 1.3 cm on this fine piece, which looks like a hedgehog, it has so many crystals. The gossan matrix is richly covered with green, matte, micro mimetite, which is uncommon from this find.
