- Wulfenite With Calcite
- Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
- Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
This is a fascinating combo specimen with varied textures and colors. Emplaced at the top-left of a limonite matrix is a small area of lustrous and velvety, rich green spheres of mimetite, to .5 cm across. This is actually minimized in the photo, because of the need to shoot for focus on the wulfenites, but trust me its nice and green up there. Beautiful, caramel-colored, large crystals of lustrous and translucent wulfenite to 1.8 cm in length are perched on the limonite in a seam running through the middle. The effect is dramatic. Many of the wulfenites are doubly terminated, though a few are damaged, please note. An unusual accent are flake-like crystals of stark, pure-white calcite.
