San Juan Poniente Shaft, Ojuela Mine, Mapimi Durango Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 6.1 x 4.2 cm
An unusually aesthetic, 3-dimensional disco-ball of wulfenite hangs at one end of this specimen! pseudocubic, lustrous and translucent, butterscotch-colored, wulfenite crystals, to .8 cm in length, festoon a limonite matrix. I especially like the cluster or rosette of crystals perched high on the matrix. It gives the piece an elgance, that most of these specimens simply do not have.
