Mimetite
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.4 x 3.7 x 2.4 cm (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $195


Very pretty "wet look" bright Mimetite from the late 2012 finds at Mapimi. When these were found everyone compared them to the legendary Mimetites of San Pedro de Coralitos from the 70's. Many considered these to have better form, color and luster. The largest and most perfect specimens sold quickly for huge sums and there have been none since. We have a few smaller, very nice pieces that will not break the bank and display very well. Nearly perfect this specimen has very minor damage that can only be seen with a careful in hand study. Great display impact for the size, this is a fraction of the price for a mediocre San Pedros piece yet has a lot more eye appeal.
