Here is an excellent mimetite miniature with no damage, good transparency, and handsome color. Most of the crystals are doubly terminated and show good brilliance, covering almost entirely the brown and black matrix. This material caused a sensation when it was first discovered in 2003, and are long since mined out and difficult to find today. Ref: The Mineralogical Record 38(1), 23-30.
