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 golden yellow colored crystals to about 3.5 mm, heavily covering the display face of the limonite matrix, with more crystals on the back side as well. Some of the crystals are double terminated. Specimens from this mine are now hard to find. No damage.
