This is a cluster of three deeply colored, reddish- orange wulfenite crystals, to 1.3 cm across, looking somewhat like those from the famous Red Cloud Mine in Arizona. They are more fat, and more orangey in color however. They come form a famous locality mined briefly in the 1960s. Such specimens are rare, and such specimens with good color and aesthetics even more so. This is, quality-wise, the best wulfenite I have seen from the locale.
