Thick botryoidal masses of translucent yellow Austinite over a Limonite matrix. Usually found as thin crusts with crystalline surfaces or small 'gumdrop' formations, this specimen is both unusual and exceptional, easily the best I've ever owned.

Thick, transparent colorless Cerussite crystals, shocking in size and quality for the locality. This is from a recent find and look more like something you would see from Tsumeb than any I've ever seen from the Ojuela Mine. The specimen is composed of a large single crystal with a smaller V-twin attached. Unfortunately while photographing, the small V-twin detached from the main crystal and I had to therefore reattach it (the smaller crystal fits perfectly into an angular groove on the larger crystal like a puzzle piece).
