Item Description

This is a wonderful display quality, highly aesthetic specimen of the famous, beloved Mimetite specimens from the Ojuela Mine. This large miniature / small cabinet features glowing orange-yellow colored semi-radial groups measuring up to about 7 mm long sitting atop contrasting brown Limonite matrix. If you look closely, you can see a few small yellow tabular crystals of Wulfenite on the piece as well. Each Mimetite group is elongated, and while they are not narrow prisms, they aren't complete "spheres" either, rather somewhere in between. I love the eye-catching distinct resinous luster on the Mimetites and the fact that the groups are fairly well-separated and defined makes them all the more enticing. A showy and three-dimensional display specimen of these well-known and fine quality Mimetites. No major damage that I can see, just some peripheral contacts where the piece was removed from the pocket wall. Priced in our inventory at $1,200.
