When you see pieces like this, you can understand why they were sometimes called "green wulfenite" at the time! This is the best find of the material, from the mid 1980's, and the crystals have a stunning luster and translucency at the edges. The color is electric green - maybe a "radioactive green," given the uranium here. Specimens of this size, in such perfect condition and with aesthetics, are uncommon on the market and have been for decades. It is a full cabinet piece.
