San Pedro Corralitos Mine, Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico
Miniature, 5.3 x 2.2 x 1.9 cm
A brilliantly colorful miniature of top tier quality, with riveting yellow-orange color, large botryoidal growths, and good 3-dimensional form. The piece formed coating a ridge of matrix, now gone in the middle. So, it is complete on all sides except the bottom. A fine miniature from this famous, one-time find of 1968 of very high quality. If displayed vertically, this looks like a stalactite, but it is not a true stalactite per se
