Botryoidal Mimetite on Matrix

Beautiful plate of intensely yellow Botryoidal Mimetite on matrix!

A lovely plate with just a touch of orange in certain portions of the clean, bright yellow surfaces. A tiny sprinkling of Calcite crystals adds a good amount of sparkle. The matrix is a thin one which removes the bulkiness often seen with these specimens. The upright presentation is very nice.

From the San Pedro Corralitos Mine, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Measures 8.8 cm by 7.2 cm by 2.5 cm in total size.
