Mimetite -Gemmy accicular crystals
As recorded:
Pingtouling Mine, Liannan, Sanjiang, Guangdong, China
Mindat locality:
65mm x 44mm x 22mm
From the now classic finds over a decade ago, this is a bright yellow mass of Mimetite crystals on a solid Gossan matrix. An early piece(vintage 2002)that is not like most of the Pingtouling Mimetites, the crystals are more elongated and some are tapered. In fine condition there are crystals on all sides of the matrix but the side shown is by far the best display face. A choice piece from a closed locale, no longer available.
