Item Description

An exceptionally rich and showy, old-time, combination specimen from the famous Mammoth Mine at Tiger. Highly lustrous, orange to orange-brown, rounded, campylite crystals of mimetite cover all sides of the vuggy matrix and are nicely accented with glassy, colorless, willemite crystals. Mimetite of this quality is RARE from Tiger and closely resembles classic, old material from the historic, Dry Gill Mine of England. The orange crystals reach 4 mm on this outstanding piece from the Dennis Mullane Collection. Comes with an older 1950s-60s era The Bradleys label. There is a November, 1952 date on the label! Valued at $600-800 for quality, richness and rarity.
