Wulfenite on Calcite
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico,
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 4.2 x 2.0 cm
This is a choice small cabinet piece with the highest color saturation, and gemmiest crystals you can ask for in this style of wulfenite from this old classic locale. The piece probably dates to the 1960s, possibly earlier. It presents an aesthetic contrast of sharp pseudo-cubic wulfenites upon the smooth Baryte. The larger crystal is 1.5 cm across.
