Chapacase Mine, Sierra Cerillos District, Tocopilla, Chile
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.0 x 4.0 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda; Terry Szenics
Very unusual locality piece featuring a pocket of sparkly, orange-red, tabular Wulfenite crystals. The crystals simply radiate due to their superb luster, and they range up to 4-5 mm on edge. Naturally, some of the peripheral crystals have been affected, but the main crystals in the pocket are in very good condition. Good Wulfenites from here are rare, and quite sought after. This one is from the personal collection of miner Terry Szenics, who collected them and brought them out.
