Mimetite - modern classic
stock #AX-26-006
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
5.7 x 3.2 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400
Worldwide mix summer

Superb top quality specimen from the great finds at Pingtouling over a decade ago. Top color and bright glassy luster, the condition is remarkable. We have handled a lot of these Mimetites and just a few really stand out, this is one of the best with display impact far bigger than its size. The color is the most desirable orange-yellow. Crystals are up to 1.5 CM which is huge for the find. The Pingtouling mine flooded and collapsed years ago but the Mimetites it produced in a very short period are regarded as some of the best yet found on the planet. Excellent value.

A well formed cluster of undamaged Mimetite crystals on matrix from the famed finds in 2003-4 at Pingtouling. Since the mine collapsed some years ago these specimen have become highly desirable and much appreciated. This is a choice and undamaged toenail or small miniature with excellent orange yellow color and perfect form. A modern classic.

Mimetite - gemmy acicular crystals
stock #7.AE-334
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
6.5 x 4.4 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $460
Winter 2016-17

From the now classic finds over a decade ago, this is a bright yellow mass of Mimetite crystals on a solid Gossan matrix. An early piece(vintage 2002)that is not like most of the Pingtouling Mimetites, the crystals are more elongated and some are tapered. In fine condition there are crystals on all sides of the matrix but the side shown is by far the best display face. A choice piece from a closed locale, no longer available.

Mimetite-fine gemmy crystals
stock #13.1-371
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
5 x 3.1 x2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $375


A fine and colorful piece from the great but short lived location at Pingtouling. Many collectors rank these Mimetites in the running for best of specie. Glassy sharp and clean of damage this displays well, has the most desirable orange color and is quite a good value.

HOLD Mimetite
stock #HOLD 9.1-362
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
5.3 x 4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $850


An excellent, clean and well-crystallized Mimetite from the world-class finds of 2003 at Pingtouling. Many collectors now consider this small find to have produced the world most attractive Mimetite, and as the mine is flooded and collapsed there will be no more. These are already classics with prices climbing and few good ones available. This a nice piece and the color is rich (a little more orange-yellow than is seen on some computers). In very good condition there is no eye visible damage on the display area. It is nearly pure Mimetite, and heavy. This has been carefully stabilized so there is no worry of crumbling matrix.

Mimetite on Gossan matrix
stock #5.1-158
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
5.9 x 3.8 (miniature)
price: $300


Sharp crystals with good color on a very delicate gossan matrix. A very good example from this important location which like many others is no longer producing any quality materials. Very reasonable price for a very good miniature!
