Mimetite with Wulfenite

Mimetite with Wulfenite

A couple of years ago, a small find at the Rowley Mine (which ceased commercial operations almost 100 years ago) produced these brilliantly-coloured specimens. The matrix is richly coated with bright orange-red acicular to prismatic mimetite crystals 2 to 3mm in size. On top of these are scatttered bright orange, highly lustrous translucent to transparent wulfenite crystals, the largest of which is 1.8mm in size.
