An outstanding Ojuela Adamite, with sharp glassy undamaged crystals on contrasting matrix. This is not the crumbly type gossan but a solid specimen with the Adamites well protected in a vug.

Rutile stars are one of the most amazing mineral habits and when they grow from a flat crystal of Hematite it is especially impressive.

The type of bright electric blue Azurite that was major news in the mineral world. The association of crystallized Malachite adds an strong contrast to the lustrous Azurite crystals. I good condition there is chippining at outer sides but the center is clean and undamaged. Better in person, when these were first found a specimen of this quality would be priced in the thousands. This was a huge find and so the prices have become much more affordable for a choice Azurite. As of 2014 the Azurite zone is finished and no more is expected.

The color contrast of pointed orange Wulfenites and mossy green Mimetite is outstanding. Over the past many decades only a few finds of this habit have been made at Ojuela. This is from the most recent in 2013 and is a killer for the small size. In very good condition as seen the Wulfenites are delicate but protected in the cavity here they are in far better condition that usual. One of the better quality recent mineral finds,no more have been found since then.
