Terrific pair of beautiful orange-red Wulfenites from undoubtedly the world's most famous Wulfenite mine, The Red Cloud. These translucent/gemmy crystals have superb luster and the classic beveled edges, and they are aesthetically placed so they do not interfere with each other. They are FAT at 3-4 mm thickness at center, The largest is 1.2 cm on edge. Most modern Red Clouds tend to be more orange, but these clearly have a deep red hue to them, a la the classic old Ed Over pieces... from the 1930s. I give it very serious betting that this is, in fact, an old Ed Over specimen. It has the right color, fatness, and matrix. But I cannot prove it or the price would double. In any case, it is a superb Red Cloud specimen that is quite different than any modern finds, and simply glows with color and luster. In person, it is extremely impressive and "mighty" in impact. It is NOT average and is MUCH BETTER in person
