Description:Classic material from this now famous discovery in China, which is completely mined out and will never produce these specimens again. These specimens shook things up so much when they came out over a decade ago. This lovely small cabinet features very sharp, highly lustrous, prismatic hexagonal crystals of these superb Mimetites sitting on oxidized matrix. The crystals have an incredibly lively yellow-orange hue which is amplified by the small areas of gemminess on the terminations. The largest Mimetite measures 7 mm. Very attractive in person, and good crystallized examples of Mimetite are very hard to find from any contemporary locality, one typically must search for them in old collections. Priced at $750 in the inventory
