Description

Details

Mimetite is a lead arsonate chloride mineral, forming as a bi-product of lead deposition and the oxidation of galena. Its name derives from the Greek, mimetes, meaning "imitator" and alludes to the stark resemblance to another mineral: pyromorphite. The botryoidal habitation of the crust makes for an attractive addition to any mineral collection. These specimens measure 20 mm in length and come supplied inside a gem box with accompanying display card printed inside.
