Superb set of five gemmy, lemon-yellow Mimetites. The long, slender Mimetite crystals sit beautifully on the matrix, giving each other space but also interacting enough to create great visual interest. The longest crystal is about 2 cm long, and the rabbit-ear Mimetites are very gemmy, with equally fine luster. For sheer aesthetics and quality, this is one of the nicer of these I have seen.
