ID: CC11843
Sharp “dog-tooth” acicular crystals of honey-lemon Mimetite almost entirely coat the upper face of a mixed sulphide matrix coated in very fine, sub-mm colourless Calcite crystals. The underside is vuggy and these contain similar Mimetite and a number of orangey-tan Wulfenite crystals to about 6 mm across.  The Mimetite crystals are typically 5 to 8 mm long and form a tangled network of highly lustrous crystals.
