Mimetite on hemimorphite, Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
description: 4 1/4" ac. Ex Marcus Origlieri collection. I traded the piece from Marcus in late 2012 when we met in Tucson. This piece consist of vibrant yellow, glistening sphere of mimetite on a contrasting black matrix. Scattered over both the mimetite spheres and the limonite are terminated, bladed and lustrous crystals of hemimorphite. The combination of the two species is stunning and I cannot remember seeing it prior to 2012 when I acquired this piece from Marcus. It was probably mined in 2011 or 2012.
