Wulfenite, Mimetite
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 3.8 x 3.4 cm
San Juan Poniente, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
An striking specimen with lustrous, pseudocubic, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals festooned on a very sturdy, 3-dimensional gossan matrix and beautifully complimented by botryoidal green mimetite from a new find at the Mina Ojuela at Mapimi, Mexico. The largest wulfenite crystal is 2.0 cm (large for find). This is a new find, from just before the 2008 Denver Show. The exact mine location is Level 6, San Juan Poniente vein.
