Helena Mine, C rna (Schwarzenbach), Mezica (Miess), Slovenia
Miniature, 5.3 x 5.1 x 3.6 cm
This old time specimen features 2 crystal forms of orangy-tan, lustrous wulfenite on one specimen: both thick, tabular crystals; and bi-pyramidal crystals. They are mostly protectively nestled in a vug. The largest crystals measure .7 cm across. This is a very important locality specimen from a bygone era and a defunct locality, surely 100 years old and more! I am told that "Schwarzenbach, Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany" on old labels is in actuality Helena Mine, C rna (Schwarzenbach), Mezica (Miess), Slovenia.
