Comment: Lustrous, cauliflower-like florets of yellow mimetite crystals fill a sculptural vug in sturdy gossan matrix and form a very 3-dimensional, excellent and showy specimen from the famous Mina Ojuela of Mexico. A REAL bonus is the 1.5 cm, same color, glassy, wulfenite blade partially hidden in the mimetites. This is classic and sculptural material from the 1960s finds at this historic locale.
