RM613   Austinite on goethite-hematite

Mina Ojuela, Mapimí, Municipio de Mapimí, Durango, Mexico

This speciemn shows various aggregates formed by several austinite lanceolate crystals. Good transparence, excellent brilliance and slight greenish tone. On starkly contrasting matrix with goethite-hematite. This specimen has a good quality for the species. I recommend the buyer to use a magnifying lens to enjoy the small crystals that are disposed on the matrix. Enjoy it!

Main crystal: 9 x 2 mm.
Found in 2008.
