Wulfenite and Mimetite
San Francisco Mine, Cerro Prieto, Cucurpe, Sonora, Mexico
Toenail, 2.9 x 2.1 x 0.9 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
A classic Wulfenite/Mimetite combination composed of transparent, lustrous orange-yellow windowpane Wulfenite and beautiful orange Mimetite balls from one of the world's best localities for the species. These are from classic late 1970s finds. San Francisco Mine Wulfies are known for their gemminess, beveled edges, and association with Mimetite. Aesthetic, and quite classic. The large crystal here is 2.9 cm tall, of good size! It is nearly pristine, with just a few minor bits of edge ding. The termination is complete, and shows both a rounded termination and a sharp squared edge, joined together atop. Admittedly, it could be photographed better...and it IS better in person...
