Wulfenite With Mimetite
San Francisco Mine, Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Mention the combination of windowpane Wulfies with Mimetite and images of the San Francisco Mine will always pop up. This excellent specimen is no exception for this classic locality. The main 2.2 cm crystal is razor-sharp and gemmy with superb luster. The larger secondary windowpane had a bit of typical edge wear, but it is of almost no consequence because of the viewing angle. The Mimetites are an exceptionally deep orange color. This is an excellent miniature from a world-famous locality. From the Richard Hauck collection, actually, just mixed in here by accident.
