Very good cluster of botryoidal Mimetite from the classic locality of San Pedro Correlitos, and the one-time find there in 1968. The color is very good (TOP yellow color saturation for this material, without the usual hints of orange or brown), and the silky luster gives the Mimetite a lovely visual richness. The largest of the spheres is an amazing 1.5 cm across. An excellent Mimetite with top combination of color and luster, that is more rare today than people think. Few of this quality seem to have survived the years undamaged. Formerly in the Sam Nasser collection
