Old material, from this old district mined in the early to mid 1900s. We seldom see rich plates of wulfenite from the Darwin District of mines. I have seen smaller pieces this richness, but not of this size and richness. This came out of an old collection being sold off recently, in California. Previously, that collector had bought it from now-retired dealer/collector Jean Hamel in the 1980s. This piece was collected in the mid-1970s by Wolfgang Mueller, now of Tucson, in prospecting the old mines of the Darwin District. Joe Budd photos
