Mimetite With Wulfenite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.0 x 4.5 cm
One of my favorite pieces overall, this is a very 3-dimesnional specimen with lots of color and crevasses. It is covered by a solid crust of mimetite in velvety, rich green spheres to .5 cm across; and then accented by equant, glassy and translucent, amber-colored wulfenite crystals. The contrast in form, in geometry, and in color is striking. This is the epitomy of the qualities of this new find. BETTER In PERSON, one of the best in this update overall.
