Small but impressive, colorful and choice thumbnail from the last workings of the Rowley mine. A perfect "windowpane" Wulfenite crystal dominates a sparkling mass of bright red Mimetite crystals. in exceptional condition as seen, the color and luster make this jump on display despite the small size. It seems this mine will never again be worked and it is a pity as it was an incredible source for distinctive Wulfenites like this that are unlike any others known on the planet.

A choice gemmmy clear tabular Axinite single crystal with etched edges and sharp centers. Especially glassy luster with elegant growth patterns etced in the lage flat faces. From the Ganchu district in Gilgit area, Pakistan, this was a small but wonderful find. The color in most lighting is a root beer brown with highlights of yellow-orange to red-purple. Somewhat dichroic as well, this changes color and darkens in Polarized light or even when rotated in from of a computer monitor.
