||Mimetite (Botryoidal Yellow)
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
6.7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
From the earliest finds of several years ago this is a classic San Pedro Corralitos Mimetite. More recent finds never reached the quality of the original discovery. The very best classics have a wet-look luster, super bright color and very high price tags when available. They are world class.. This piece is pretty good ( far better than recent specimens) but does not reach the top color or luster that would add a zero to the price. The form on this is excellent and displays well but luster and color are not quite the level of the best pieces.
