Bright lemon yellow crystals that are sharp and gemmy contrast with white Calcites. Choice and lustrous, this is an older specimen from the "golden era" at Mina Ojuela. Vivid Fluorescence and in great condition.

stock #18-AX-29-112
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.6 x 3.9 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Spring update

Delicate sprays of Adamite in the classic fan form that are nicely perched on mix of Gossan and other Adamites. Attractive small miniature in fine condition, with fans up to 1.8 CM. Good luster and distinctive form this can only be from Mina Ojuela. From 2013 finds, good fans have become hard to find.
Adamite- Multi-color radiating crystals
stock #18-AX-11-273
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
9.1 x 7.8 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150
Spring update

A large matrix specimen with big sunburst habit Adamite crystals prominent on contrasting matrix. The radiating crystals are also multicolored, with yellow, magenta and greenish hues. Aside from some small contacts the condition is fine. The largest cluster is sizable at 3.7 CM in diameter. A great example of the specie and a very attractive Ojuela piece as well. Several small sprays of multicolored Adamites are scattered on the back and edges but the main sunburst is the main feature by far.
Mimetite
stock #13.1-147
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.3 x 3.7 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $525
Spring update

Strong esthetic miniature with bright color and luster. From the pockets found in 2013, this find produced a small number of these brilliant wet-look Mimetites. Much like the famous San Pedro de Coralitos Mimetites (but from Mina Ojuela) these had a little brighter color and a more elongated habit. Choice, eye-catching and displays well from all sides. In pristine undamaged condition and a good value, these have not been found since 2013.
Adamite- isolated prisms and fan aggregates
stock #10.1-165
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.8 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $320
Spring update

Sharp yellow crystals in clusters on contrasting fingers of Gossan matrix. Ex Marty Zinn collection, a very three dimensional specimen with glassy prisms standing on end above the reddish matrix. several fan aggregates are present as well as isolated single crystals with transparent tips. In excellent undamaged condition.
Adamite- gemmy crystals on gossan
stock #18.1-139
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
7.8 x 5.8 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Spring update

A pretty and unusual Adamite from 1960 vintage finds at Mina Ojuela. There are two generations of well crystallized Adamite on matrix, the first is a light green to lemon yellow chisel-tipped type, the second is colorless to white. Bright and vividly sparkling in person, the luster and quality are impressive. More recent specimens have a very different look. Very strong fluorescence as well, this has far better esthetics than typical Mexican Adamite.
Hemimorphite -radiating sheaf habit crystals
stock #17.1-884
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
5.8 x 4.6 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Pre Holiday 2017

A radiating ball like spray of blue hued Hemimorphite crystals from the famed Mina Ojuela. The individual sheaves reach 1.3 CM and are somewhat zoned, a hint of green copper secondaries are seen as well. Unlike most of the Hemimorphites from this locale, these are opaque crystals and the luster is subdued overall but have a sparkling secondary coating of smaller clear Hemi crystals. The display area in in fine condition but the back and underside have some damage or contacting. Some minor Goethite is also present as small spheres. Not typical at all, this is an odd yet pretty specimen.
Hemimorphite- Radiating blue crystals
stock #17.1-AX-11-036
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
6.1 x 5.9 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $850


A starburst of glassy Hemimorphite crystals with the extra attraction of being a nice pale blue color. From 2015 finds in Mina Ojuela, this is an especially fine and esthetic specimen. Some of the best Hemimorphite ever found comes from this locale, but very little ever had this most desirable blue color. The individual prisms are up to 1.1 CM long and have a bright glassy luster. Choice and very rarely available in this quality.
