- Mimetite With Wulfenite
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
- Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.5 x 4.0 cm
A thin but 3-dimensional crust of silky, rich green mimetite, to .6 cm across, completely covers a core of ocherous limonite. In one quadrant of the specimen as accent are three elongated, lustrous and translucent, amber-colored crystals of wulfenite, to 1 cm in length. Two of the wulfenite crystals are also doubly terminated. Primarily though, the piece is a mimetite, and a very attractive one!
