Hilltop mine (Hand Mine),Rustier Park, Chiricahua Mts. Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
7.1 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
Outstanding rich yellow color crystals to 2 cm from this important, classic American mine. Hilltop Wulfenites are quite desirable and the best have this lemon to orange- yellow color. This one was part of the famous find by Ed Over that was sold as a lot to the Schortman Brothers thru Arthur Montgomery who then distributed these worldwide. The piece has some damaged crystals that are visible in the photos but it still has an attractive presentation. Top examples of these are incredibly hard to find and very expensive, this one with some damage is still far above average and at a very reasonable price.
