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.

HOLD Mimetite
stock #HOLD 7-CNA-434
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang
Guangdong Province, China
4.3 x 3 CM (small miniature)
price: $350

A very fine small miniature or toenail of excellent quality. The Pingtouling Mine Mimetites are legendary and considered by many to be the best ever found. The mine has been closed for years and nothing new found since. This has fine color and form, displays well and is priced below market levels.

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!
