Mimetite

ID: CC4642

Crystals of Mimetite from the Elura Mine, NSW. This Lead-Zinc deposit was discovered in 1971, and went into production in the early 1980s. Crystals of Mimetite form lots of scattered and aggregated clusters, individuals measuring to 1.3cm. Mimetite crystals have a thickened tabular hexagonal form, with a further secondary growth on the prism faces. Crystals are mostly pastel tan -yellow, with a number showing a zoned colouration. On a matrix of grey-black and russet brown Goethite. A rich Mimetite specimen from the Mine.
