The Kengere Mine is not well known amongst mineral collectors, though it has produced specimens of smithsonite and secondary lead minerals since the 1950s. This is a rare mimetite specimen from this locality, in a brilliant neon green color. The botryoidal crystals formed in vugs in a dark gray anglesite, which has produced tiny druzy crystals in a few openings. Green mimetite is rare, and this is a fine example.
