Item Description

Beautiful, multi-hued iridescent and non-iridescent goethite botryoids are colorfully festooned on this sculptural large plate from the famous Milpillas Mine. Goethite was a common mineral in the oxide ore bodies at Milpillas, but specimens of this quality are uncommon. See the fine 2021 Mineralogical Record Mexico Special Issue IX on the Milpillas Mine, Vol. 52, No. 5. Ex Tim Sherburn Collection. A very fine and colorful accessory from the well-known locale.
