Mimetite
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
4.9 x 3.2 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Spring 2014

A very showy, dense cluster of glassy Mimetite crystals with minimal matrix. This is the quality of Mimetite that made Pingtouling world-famous. The individual crystals reach 1.6 CM and are quite transparent with a rich yellow to orange color range. In very fine condition damage-wise, some slight chipping can be found on the "underside" and is not visible from most views. This find was finished by 2003, and is considered (along with Tsumeb's gem pocket) as the world's best for the species. Displays well from several sides. Good examples like this one are now quite uncommon.
