Mimetite with Malachite

$450.00   €407  £360.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC19162
A lovely small miniature composed entirely of Mimetite, yet exhibiting two very different morphologies.  On one face the Mimetite is typical of Tsumeb, as pale canary-yellow acicular crystals whereas the opposite side is mammillated and botryoidal, with highly lustrous butterscotch druses, reminiscent of Bunker Hill.  The specimen has been tightly folded in on itself to form a nodular specimen invested with both habits of Mimetite.  A small pinhead cluster of leaf-green Malachite sits on one face.  A choice Mimetite miniature.
