Mimetite with Wulfenite and Calcite
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
10.3 x 5.8 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $280


Green botryoidal Mimetite is decorated with a few blocky orange-yellow Wulfenites in an open seam. A choice example of this habit and association from Mina Ojuela (Mexico) from the earlier finds in the late 1970's. The matrix is a spongy microcrystaline Mimetite / Wulfenite as well, but outside of the open cavity the color is a less attractive brown and more dull luster. The seam also holds a few Calcite crystals in flattened rhomb form as well. Green Mimetite in this form is somewhat less common than the yellow worldwide.
