- Pingtouling Mine, Liannan Co., Qingyuan, Guangdong Province, China
- Miniature, 3.5 x 3.3 x 2.5 cm
Bright orange, super lustrous Mimetite crystals to 1.2cm across from the famous 2001-2002 discovery at this small, remote, lead-zinc mine in China! This is an exceptional miniature with numerous, super-lustrous, translucent hexagonal prisms nicely clustered on a granular Mimetite-Goethite matrix. For the size, it would be hard to find better today. The color is the top fiery-orange hue that was rare even in that time.
