San Francisco Mine, Cerro Prieto, Sonora, Mexico

Ex. William Panczner

A classic from the 1970s and one of the most beautiful associations in mineral collecting, these fantastic "windowpane" wulfenites on red-orange mimetite are simply one of the must have items from the glory years of Mexico mineral discovery. This specimen features a 1 cm crystal of wulfenite perched on the deeply colored botryoids of mimetite. From the award-winning thumbnail collection of Sharon and William Panczner, author of the book Minerals Of Mexico, and last seen and exhibited in the 1960s. Of high quality, this is a stunning specimen. Probably from the finds of 1973-1976
