A very attractive specimen, this piece consists of a goethite/limonite base on which rest dozens of round, botryoidal Mimetite globules. They range in diameter from less than one millimeter to 0.2" (0.5 cm), and are in excellent condition, showing almost no damage. The clusters have a dull yellow coloration and a dull, silky luster, and are translucent. Some of the larger globules rest on what appear to be small clusters of intergrown adamite crystals- I cannot be certain, but that is what I think they are! These crystals have a pearly luster, a pale pink-violet coloration, and are transparent and relatively clear, though one cannot see much of them. They only add to the beautiful specimen, making it also a bit unusual and intriguing.
