Mimetite

ID: CC762

An unusual specimen of mustard yellow Mimetite with vitreous sparkling lustre. The Mimetite has grown in diverging sheaths of crystals, with smaller individual elongate crystals around the edges to radiating clusters in the centre, with a coral-like growth. In places there is a brown inclusion in the top of the crystal clusters. An attractive sparkle to this Mimetite from a classic location.
