Wulfenite, Mimetite
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 2.5 cm
San Juan Poniente, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Lustrous, bi-pyramidal, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals are festooned on this specimen from a new find at the Mina Ojuela at Mapimi, Mexico. Crystals reach 1.6 cm on this fine piece, which looks like a hedgehog, it has so many crystals. A scattering of velvety-green, botryoidal mimetite is a very nice accent. The exact mine location is Level 6, San Juan Poniente vein.
