Wulfenite, Mimetite
San Francisco Mine (Cerro Prieto Mine), Cerro Prieto, Cucurpe, Mun. de Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.8 x 3.4 cm
An excellent wulfenite and mimetite miniature from the San Francisco Mine of Mexico. Golden-yellow, water-clear wulfenite windowpanes to 1.6 cm are aesthetically and richly scattered on the mounded gossan matrix, which is richly covered with botryoidal, yellow mimetite. The wulfenite blades have very sharp beveled edges. This is classic and outstanding combination material from this historic mine.
