- Pingtouling Mine, Liannan Co., Qingyuan, Guangdong, China
- Miniature, 5.5 x 4.2 x 1.4 cm
A brilliantly lustrous plate of fiery orange Mimetite crystals to 1 cm from finds at the Pingtouling Mine around 2003-2004. These scintillating Mimetites completely cover the matrix and crystals range in color from bright fiery orange to smoky orange creating a sensational variegation of color. The Mimetites are all perfect, tabular hexagons from from 2 mm to 1 cm across and are in excellent condition with only minor contacting around the periphery, and one small crystal separated from its base. A spectacular and colorful piece with crystals of good size and color from a now defunct locality. These specimens have not been seen in nearly 2 decades.
