A captivating specimen of excellent, deep orange-caramel Wulfenite crystals, perched on a contrasting drusy matrix of Endlichite (?) on Calcite, from the famous Los Lamentos. The Wulfenites are also unusually elongated along the C-axis, therefore they are prismatic and sharp. The largest is an impressive 1.8 cm long. Each of these crystals has superb luster, an almost watery undulation to the surface, and great, eye-catching color. A few original crystals are missing, but the dominant half-dozen are in excellent shape with only very minor edge-wear. Overall, the quality and aesthetics are excellent, as you can tell.
