Wulfenite, Mimetite
San Juan Poniente, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Mun. de Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 5.5 x 3.4 cm
A sculptural specimen with lustrous, pseudocubic, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals richly scattered on a very sturdy, 3-dimensional gossan matrix and beautifully complimented by botryoidal green mimetite from a recent find at the Mina Ojuela at Mapimi, Mexico. The largest wulfenite crystal is 1.2 cm and is doubly terminated. This is a recent find, from just before the 2008 Denver Show. The exact mine location is Level 6, San Juan Poniente vein.
