Mimetite on Calcite
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.8 x 3.0 cm
Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico
Ex. Richard Heck
This piece has more 3-dimensionality and "airiness" to it than usually seen in the material, which tends towards massive agglomerations of mimetite rather than to aesthetics. Contrasting in form and color with its accent, the lustrous and translucent, sharp white calcite rhomb of 1.8-cm-across, is a cluster of lustrous, translucent, amber-colored mimetite crystals, to 8 mm in length. Not to be confused with later finds at San Pedro Correlitos, this is an old classic
