Wulfenite on Descloizite
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 5.2 x 3.0 cm
Ex. Harold Urish
A shockingly stark, contrasting specimen with UPRIGHT, ISOLATED wulfenite crystals! The waxy-lustrous, translucent, caramel colored wulfenite crystals are aesthetically arranged on matrix of descloizite upon quartz. Nature and a good trim job by a friend have together conspired to place the largest crystal, almost 2 cm across tip to tip, perfectly in the center of the specimen, giving this piece the dominant-crystal aesthetics of competition quality pieces! It is simply, starkly, one of the more beautiful examples of its size and style I have seen from the mine. Displays beautifully on a custom-made lucite base.
