Item Description

No, this mimetite specimen is NOT from San Pedro Corralitos. Even those are hard to get now, but this is an even rarer large miniature of similar form and color from a completely different locality in Zacatecas. These are translucent, orange botryoids with a silky luster, with pretty 3-dimensionality and are accented with sparkly drusy quartz. From a one-time find in the 1950s, I am told. ex Consie Prince collection of Houston
