Hat Yai, Hat Yai District, Songkhla Province, Thailand
Cabinet, 10.0 x 7.5 x 2.7 cm
A rich, gorgeous specimen covered with sparkling yellow barrel-shaped crystals of mimetite from this one-time find of the mid-1990s. These are spectacular mimetite by any standard and were generally unappreciated at the time. Scarce, now, they were never common to begin with and no more have come out since. This is a specimen that had remained with one of the original importers of the material into Europe, until recently.
