Wulfenite With Mimetite
San Juan Poniente Shaft, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 8.6 x 3.9 x 1.9 cm
The pleasing, dark green color of the botryoidal mimetite contrasts nicely with the pseudocubic, lustrous and translucent, butterscotch-colored colored wulfenite crystals, to .75 cm across. All of this is on a sculptural and 3-dimensional limonite matrix. There is some minimal damage to a few wulfenite crystals or this would be twice the price, but it is still visually quite a nice specimen and worth this just for the mimetite, I think.
