- Mimetite With Wulfenite
- Miniature, 5.5 x 4.0 x 3.0 cm
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
A verdant hillside of lustrous, rich green mimetite is surmounted by a few elongated, lustrous and translucent, amber-colored wulfenite crystals to 1.5 cm in length. A surprising (until this find) and unique combination! All of this is underlain by a knobby limonite matrix which pokes out on the edges (and is sawn to reduce mass, in back). The contrast and balance on the specimen is very aesthetic, and it is more 3-dimensional in person.
