Description

    Köttigite (?)
    Ojuela Mine
    Mapimí, Mun. de Mapimí
    Durango
    Mexico
    4.09 x 3.33 x 1.59 inches (10.38 x 8.45 x 4.04 cm)


    The example of the rare hydrated zinc arsenate mineral Kottigite was actually labeled Chenevixite which is unlikey due to its appearance and the fact that its matrix is covered with microcrystals of Adamite - an indicator it may be from the Ojuela Mine in Durango, Mexico. Accession number "4724" appears on the bottom. This intriquing rock with fibrous crystals comes with a custom base for easy display.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $300 - up.
