A superb, gem wulfenite crystal from the Red Cloud Mine and the Jaime Bird Collection. This highly lustrous, reddish-orange crystal has a fabulous, razor-sharp, beveled edge and is accented by small wulfenites on one side. This fine older piece dates to the 1960s finds. Jaime worked for Hamel Mining and got good specimens for his thumbnail collection. This is certainly one of them.
