This is a lovely specimen of golden yellow MIMETITE from the San Judas Vein, Level 7, Mina Ojuela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico. Mimetite is a minor ore of lead, and in this case the mineral is colored a nice rich golden yellow. Mimetite is most often found in botryoidal aggregates and crystallized crusts, but occasionally the crystals are elongated and have grown as single crystals and in multiple crystal sprays or fans of very sharp individual crystals, almost completely covering the vuggy surface of the limonite matrix. I picked out this specimen at the Tucson Gem, Rock and Mineral Show in the warehouse of one of the large wholesalers of Mexican minerals.
