Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 5.6 x 4.8 cm
Onderra Mine, Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
Ex. Charlie Key
This is a massive, heavy wulfenite specimen with huge, thick bipyramidal (unusual!) crystals to 6 cm across! Here is a real rarity for the locality, in any size. And yet, beyond that, its HUGE. This is a piece from the Charlie Key collection, found about 3 years ago (2007-2008) in exploratory mining at this prospect (others in a recent update I made on this site were found more recently). It would be important from ANY locale. From here, its simply off the books and a shock to see. Despite its size, it is nearly pristine on the display face (just a few minor bruises, hard to spot). It is not complete on the backside, but is complete on 3 sides otherwise. This piece displays well either horizontally or vertically. Note also that this is a fairly rare habit for wulfenite, in bipyramidal crystals. So far as I know, this would be among the largest, if not the largest, bipyramidal wulfenite crystal out there. Most I have seen of this habit are 1-2 cm in size, max. This was found 3 years ago, and is from the collection of noted dealer and miner, Charlie Key, also then in the Marshall Sussman collection till now
