Wulfenite (Bipyramidal) With Mimetite
Level 6, San Juan Poniente Vein, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.3 x 3.0 cm
I was able to break up one large specimen with the rare green mimetite (that really looks more like arsendescloizite but XRAY says it is just weird mimetite), to yield a few more displayable miniatures. This was the rarest in the find and the combination I think is completely and totally unique as well as beautiful, compared to anything else out there for the species. This is a beautiful mimetite, with a lateral vein of sharp wulfenites running across it. They are good quality, but don't stick out much vertically (hence the slightly lower price than it might look to command), making it a relative bargain for a good sized example of the rare association.
