Mineral Specimen #4482 Wulfenite on Mimetite
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
6.2 x 3.6 x 2.9 cm
Yellow orange colored Wulfenite crystals contrast nicely with dark green colored Mimetite. The Wulfenite crystals are an odd shape for the species being elongated and having a square cross section. Many of the terminations are composed of several sub terminations. The Wulfenite crystals have a high glossy luster and the Mimetite has a velvety texture.
Flaws: There is some minor bruising on some of the Wulfenite crystals. There are also some broken crystals along the one edge of the specimen.
