- Mimetite With Wulfenite on Galena
- Cabinet, 11.0 x 7.0 x 6.5 cm
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
Massive, dark gray galena ore (unusual for the locality) is the matrix for this combo specimen with a 4 - 5 cm wide band of secondary mineralization running its length. Spherical, beautifully velvety, rich green mimetites, to .5 cm across, are associated with scattered glassy and translucent, amber-colored wulfenite crystals, to .5 cm in length. There are some minor wulfenites that are damaged, but they are primarily here for color accent anyways and a bonus to the quality mimetite. The ribbon running down the middle presents very nicely!
