When mottramite was found at the Ojuela Mine in 2011, it took the mineral world by storm. Nothing as nice had been found since Tsumeb closed in the early 1990s. This specimen features rare stalactite formations of botryoidal crystals with a sparkling surface in a lovely shade of mostly dark olive green plus tan and some gray. There is no damage.
