This outstanding specimen of velvety mottramite comes from the Ojuela Mine in Mapimi. The mineral has formed in the uncommon botryoidal habit (it's actually microcrystalline) on a brown gossan matrix, and the mottramite itself is a dark, forest green. This is a very good, undamaged specimen of this rare species, and is highly competitive with the best of the Tsumeb material found decades ago.
