- Mimetite With Wulfenite
- Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 6.0 x 3.5 cm
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A knobby matrix of limonite is almost completely covered by very robust clusters of spherical, lustrous and velvety, rich green mimetite in balls to .75 cm across. Several wulfenite crystals, to 1.0 cm in length, are perched on the mimetite (one atop has a slight damage at one edge, though this does not detract much visually). Small specks of white calcite also are present in minute quantity. The 3-D appearance of this specimen, with that mimetite stalactite popping up, is particularly appealing and unusual. It is complete on both sides. Overall a superb and dramatic small cab specimen!
