Item Description

An impressive rich field of radiating clusters sparkly, sugary, translucent, rich yellow elongated mimetite botryoids is dramatically set on the sculptural, 3-dimensional sturdy matrix on this striking small cabinet from the limited 2013 finds at famed Mina Ojuela. The mimetites reach about 1.0 cm on this very showy piece. In great shape for all of the crystal density. A few broken botryoids are certainly minimal detractions. A 4 mm tiny glassy wulfenite windowpane surrounded by mimetites at the base of the crystal field is a cute accent and bonus. Excellent material for the find and locale.
