A fine mimetite from the late 1960s find at San Pedro Corralitos, Mexico. Lustrous, translucent, yellow-orange botryoids totally cover the thin, sturdy, curved, gossan matrix. Nearly pristine. Highly representative, classic material from this one-time-only find in 1968. Ex. Robert Whitmore Collection.
