Mimetite With Wulfenite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 3.0 cm
An ocherous limonite is the host for a few discrete, translucent spheres of rich green, mimetite, to .7 cm across along with associated equant, glassy and translucent, amber crystals of wulfenite, to .5 cm acoss. BOTH species are present sparsely on the piece, but in such stark isolation that they are dramatic and present with more impact than the size might indicate, making this a superb miniature for the find, if not the richest in color or quantity. It is a special piece despite that it is not priced highly
