Outstanding in every way, this combination features drusy, yellow Mimetite crystals along with gemmy, sharp, and water-clear Quartz crystals. The way they complement each other makes this one of my favorites in the lot. The Mimetites reach 1.6 cm in length. A photo of this specimen may be seen on page 47 in 'Minerals of Namibia' by Shields and Frances Flynn.
