  • This mound of cavernous calcite has many openings and cavities lined with fantastic crystals of mimetite. The mimetite is a sort of gemmy, yellow colour and they are tapered absolutely pointed to a needle termination. Gorgeous. Lots to look at!

  • Lots of openings in the front of this specimen are lined with lovely, yellow mimetite crystals. The crystals have kind of a divergent habit since they start as one crystal and then diverge into a multiple termination. Really nice mimetite!

  • An unusual, stalactitic growth of mimetite, with small patches of botryoidal malachite associated, plus areas of a lighter green mineral (duftite) here and there. The mimetite is very nice in the recessed areas but has been abraded on the outer extremities. t

  • Gorgeous light-orange crystals and clusters of crystals cover the bottom shelf of this interesting matrix. The matrix is mostly interlocking mimetite and goethite with some crusts of a greenish minerals, probably duftite. Unfortunately the larger cluster of mimetite crystals has some bruising but it is not noticeable. Very nice!

  • A very nice cluster of creamy, light yellow-ish mimetite crystals formed in a terminated "pineapple" looking crystal habit. The mimetite is formed on an alive green mineral, perhaps mottramite. Unique and interesting as always from Tsumeb.

  • The front of this galena-chalcocite matrix is a concave opening that protects a lining of many sharp, sparkling mimetite crystals. The mimetites are hexagonal prisms with horizontal stria and sharp pyramidal terminations. Beautiful crystals!

  • This gossan matrix is all held together by calcite crystals all through it. Amongst the calcite crystals are rounded botryoids of radiating willemite crystals that appear like light yellow balls. Different!
