The Pingtouling mine in China's Guangdong Province became famous almost overnight when some of the world's finest mimetite crystals were discovered there about 15 years ago. Now essentially mined-out, mimetite specimens from this amazing one-time-find are fast becoming classics, as well as becoming scarce on the market. This is a very fine small cabinet-size example featuring lustrous, vibrant orange crystals to ~1.5 cm on matrix, with great form, color, and aesthetics. The condition of this piece is excellent and it sits nicely for display from multiple angles. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
