Bright orange, super lustrous Mimetite crystals to .8cm across from the famous 2001-2002 discovery at this small lead-zinc mine in China! This piece has the exceptional qualities of super-lustrous, translucent hexagonal prisms nicely clustered on a granular Mimetite-Goethite matrix. The color is the top fiery-orange hue that was rare even in that time. Good fortune had us grabbing this piece before t hit the dealers table. You will NOT be dissapointed.
Locality: Pingtouling Mine, Liannan Co., Qingyuan, Guangdong Province, China
