Mimetite

ID: CC1498

Lots of doubly terminated hexagonal Mimetite crystals with adamantine lustre are scattered over matrix. The crystals are very pretty in colour - clear to pale yellow at the ends and brown in the centre, and have gemmy to milky sections. The crystals range from 2 - 9mm in length and have fine striations across the length of the crystal. An excellent example from this classic location.
