Description
An exceptionally large mimetite crystal from the major find of 2002 . Since the initial find, these mimetites have all but disappeared form the market, and the larger crystals, which were only found over a very short interval, are especially desirable. This locality was featured in the January-February issue of the Mineralogical Record. The crystal displays a skeletal growth pattern on the reverse.
