Wulfenite With Calcite
near Urumqi, Kuruktag Mountains, Xinjiang Uygur Region, Northern China
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 6.3 x 4.0 cm
This specimen was one of the first pieces out to market, last year, in a trickle that tame out which led me to pursue this find. It has a muted, but beautiful, tangerine color to the crystals which is quite nice. The white is calcite, which has not been burned off. Probably, it can be taken off, but I liked the contrast! Very little damage, and unique aesthetics, make this a special prize.
