Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 7.1 x 6.0 cm
Ex. Jason New
This very rich specimen of austinite features huge, translucent balls of sparkling crystals, to 4 cm across, on gossan matrix. It is a significant specimen of the species showing an unusual thick and large concentration of austinite, which normally just occurs here as thin crusts. From the well known Mexico collection of Jason New, which I bought in 2010. Joe Budd photos
