Mimetite - modern classic
stock #21.1-291
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
Chihuahua, Mexico
2.8 x 2.3 x 2.7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $690
Late Summer 2021

From San Pedro Coralitos, an older specimen with excellent form. Well-defined bright yellow balls of Mimetite are in both clusters and isolated on contrasting matrix. I have not seen many good thumbnails from this famed locality where most specimens were larger but this one is especially esthetic. In perfect condition on the display side, there is only a small contact on the backside of one ball not visible on display. There is no damage anywhere, this is a competition quality thumbnail.

Mimetite (botryoidal yellow)
stock #6.2-936
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $575
new year 2021

From the earliest finds of several years ago this is a classic San Pedro Corralitos Mimetite. More recent finds never reached the quality of that original discovery. The very best have a wet-look luster, super bright color and very high price tags when available. They are world class. This piece is really good (far better than many) and has excellent three dimensionality, but does not quite reach the color and luster that would add a zero to the price. An excellent value for a very pretty Mimetite. The form is classic and displays well only a few very minor contacts are noted.

SOLD Mimetite (classic wet botryoidal)
stock #SOLD 12.1-309
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.8 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
Spring 2013

From the most desirable early find (1968-69) at San Pedro Corralitos, this is a very lustrous "wet" looking yellow Mimetite. A little larger than a thumbnail, this specimen has a lot of eye appeal despite its size. No damage, great color and form, the quality of these first specimens was never seen since then- despite more than 40 years of looking!
