ID: CC11544
This brightly coloured acidic orange-zesty lemon Mimetite with Wulfenite hits you in the eye and makes your chops water the instant it is spotted; it is just one of those stand-out specimens!  A specimen of predominantly Mimetite, forming as spherical crystal aggregates of between 5- and 8-mm diameter, piled on top of one another to form a botryoidal druse over a contorted granular and vuggy Quartz matrix.  Overgrowing the Mimetite are broad blades of similar-coloured Wulfenite, the largest crystal reaching 1.7 cm across.  Do please note that some of the Wulfenite crystals are damaged, but these do not detract from the overall magnificent aesthetic.  A superb Mimetite with Wulfenite from the San Francisco mine, (also known as the Cerro Prieto mine) at Cucurpe in Mexico.
