The mimetite crystals from the Pingtouling Mine caused a huge stir when they were discovered in China back in 2003 (they are long since mined out). This specimen features sharply formed butterscotch colored crystals to about 3 mm, covering nearly the entire face of the limonite matrix. Some of the crystals are double terminated. Good ones like this are now hard to find. No damage.
