Wulfenite on Mimetite
Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
Nestled in a vug of sparkling, drusy, olive-green mimetite are equant, glassy and translucent, amber-colored crystals of wulfenite, to 1 cm across. I really like the architecture of this specimen, hosting those blockish crystals in a curving cavity. It is a wulfenite specimen, with mimetite being only the background, but the color contrsat is still striking and for the wulfenites, these are very high quality for the mine.
