ID: CC21642
The calcium-zinc arsenate Austinite forms splendid spherical clusters averaging 1 cm diameter over a rusty-chocolate brown limonitic matrix from Ojuela mine at Mapimí in Mexico.  The surface texture of the spheres is a sucrosic crystalline druse of individual crystals forming a frosted and sparkling lustre.  The overall colour is lemony-grey to buff, yet when viewed close to the Austinite appears a more olive green-yellow.  It is a terrific small cabinet specimen and comes with a Lidstrom’s of Prineville label.
