Mimetite

ID: CC1474

An excellent Tsumeb Mimetite example made up of multi-stacked elongate prismatic crystals with good golden-yellow colour and high lustre, accompanied by the occasional clear rhomb of Calcite. Large crystals of Mimetite to over 2cm! The specimen is mostly Mimetite and in places the crystals show some interesting modification. A sturdy specimen in excellent condition and with lots of character.
