XM50NP

An important find in the well-known old Atrevida mine, in the summer of 2015 a single geode with crusts of very well defined Mimetite crystals was uncovered. They are millimetric in size, very well defined and translucent with a greenish-yellow color and they show an elongated prism and an acute dipyramid. The Mimetite is more or less completely coating isolated or grouped cubic Galena crystals that are implanted on a matrix upholstered by aggregates of lenticular white Baryte crystals. Furthermore the sample have small laminar Wulfenite crystals that can be observed by close inspection. The Mimetite from this mine was already known, but not with such a well-defined and fine presentation, completely coating the Galena and absent on the Baryte.
