Ah, maybe Tsumeb?? especially from the 1972 gem pocket?

and, for variety of habit, the Rowley Mine in AZ is the best (i posted a wulf/mim photo on the Wulfenite thread).

__________
Additional information:

I changed the name of the topic from "Favourite Mimetite localities" to "Favourite Mimetites". So everyone can feel free not only to discuss his/her favourite localities but also which colours and forms of that mineral he/she likes the most, e.g. elongated or thick crystals, red or orange or yellow, well-defined crystals or botryoidal forms etc. ...

Another localitiy / specimen which is a favourite of mine is Level 2 of the Elura Mine in Cobar, New South Wales, Australia. These Mimetites are usually greenish with relatively large crystals which look like Pyromorphite at first glance.

Endeavor Mine (Elura Mine), level 2, Cobar, Robinson County, New South Wales, Australia
