- Ex. William and Sharon Panczner
A choice, sharp, textbook crystal with unusually saturated color, from the famous Red Cloud mine, an old and abandoned lead mine reworked (underground, and at some risk) by intrepid mineral collectors over the years for the wulfenite crystals within. This piece has a balanced, equant shape that makes it a particularly dramatic thumbnail specimen. 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.
