Mimetite from the Alps is rather rare, and specimens from Cinquevalli mine are among the best available.

Quite scarce and sought-after!

Note on shipping charges!
Due to recent problems with some customers, we are forced to introduce the Tracked&Signed option (2nd class) as our standard shipping rates. This brings the shipping costs up, but it is safer for both our and the customers' end. In case you would like to pay for a standard shipping rate (cheaper) please send me a message and we will send you an amended invoice.
