Wulfenite - USA Classic
stock #21.1-522
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
1.7 x 1.7 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280


Brilliant red single Wulfenite crystal perched on a small bit of matrix. In excellent condition, no chips or damage, the color and luster are both top. Classic specimen from the last mining of this iconic locality, just a nice, clean thumbnail that shows why this mine became a legend in the mineral world.

Wulfenite with Calcite etc.
stock #21.1-332
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
3.6 x 3.3 x 2.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $90
Late Summer 2021

Older blocky style Wulfenite crystals with small Calcites on gossan matrix. The majority of the large crystals are complete and slightly distorted with a burnt orange color and good luster. In good condition overall, some minor damage exists but is not very evident. Another modern classic from Ojuela.

Wulfenite with minor Mimetite
stock #A-21-048
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
5.3 x 3.4 x 1.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $1650
Late Summer 2021

Delicate and fine windowpane crystals of Wulfenite stand up from the matrix in a complex array. Very sharp, intense color and with glassy luster, the Wulfenites are all fully transparent. A few tiny balls of Mimetite are present but they are minor in comparison to the Wulfenite. In incredible condition which is amazing given the fragility of the crystals. From the final specimen recovery operations at the Rowley. This can be shipped safely (not recommended however for international orders). If requested we can hand deliver at a major mineral show. Much better in person, the bright luster is hard to fully appreciate on a computer screen.

Wulfenite, Hemimorphite, Rosasite, Aurichalcite and Malachite
stock #LH-205
79 Mine, Hayden, Banner District, Gila County
Arizona, United States
4.6 x 3.8 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $220


A rich specimen with five species well-represented and perhaps a few other micros as well. The front surface has a a cluster of windowpane habit Wulfenites resting on a mix of Hemimorphite and Rosasite on Malachite. Aurichalcite balls are also found on several areas of the specimen. A nice multi-specie piece from the now classic 79 Mine, this is in fine condition and looks incredible under the microscope too. This specimen comes from from the Les Hitchings collection, he obtained this in 1977.

Wulfenite, very large crystal coated by Quartz druse.
stock #21.FC-003
MFouati Mine, Bouenza Department
Bouenza Department, Republic of Congo (Brazzaville)
4.7 x 3.8 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $2500
Early summer 2021

A really large, sharp, fat Wulfenite crystal which is fully overgrown with a druse of sparkling Quartz crystals. This is from the first (and best) of two such finds at M'Fouti, which made big news in the mineral world. This is a superb example and a remarkable specimen from anyplace. This style and form are not known like this from any place else on earth. The Wulfenite is in perfect condition, it is broken only at the base where it was removed. There is another, perfect smaller crystal growing on one face and the orange to yellow color are more pronounced on one side of the piece, the other side is closer to a clean white hue. There were a very few pieces of this size and quality found, this is among the very best. An outstanding, unusual Wulfenite.

Wulfenite (fluorescent) with Galena, Calcite etc.
stock #15.1-881
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
8.6 x 7.7 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Early summer 2021

A very unusual and complex specimen from Touissit that is a fine illustration of lead secondary mineral formation. The core of this piece is a highly etched and partly dissolved mass of Galena, showing alteration to several other minerals. Around that is a mass of Calcite and Dolomite that are the matrix of several generations of well-crystalized Wulfenite. The oldest are completely encased in translucent Calcite, the most recent are smaller, more lustrous and vividly fluorescent in long-wave UV. The Galena was of course the source for the lead that was released as it was affected by acidic conditions and which then formed the Wulfenites. Most of the many Wulfenites are complete and perfectly undamaged but there are a few with chipping damage that are not distracting and are almost invisible in the mass of the specimen. Touissit is an amazing locality, though over shadowed by the more famous Tsumeb. It too has incredible variety and complexity to its minerals. This is a very rare fluorescent Wulfenite with just the youngest crystals responding lemon-yellow.

Wulfenite
stock #16.1-063
Jianshan Mine (stone crack), Ruoqiang County, Bayin gholin Prefecture
Xinjiang Autonomous Region, China
9.6 x 7.1 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $460
Early summer 2021

Bright and sparkling small (7mm) red Wulfenite crystals with glassy luster and epitaxial coatings of whitish Calcites. In excellent condition overall, which is incredible for such delicate thin crystals. The Calcite is selectively deposited in the middle of the Wulfenite blades and the edges are uncovered, showing a sharp beveled termination. A quite good and eye-catching example from this important find in 2016. This locality had provided many fine pieces at all levels and price points, this piece is a very good value for the locale.

Wulfenite
stock #21.1-240
La Morita Mine, Sierra Mojina District
Chihuahua, Mexico
4.4 x 3.7 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $680
Early summer 2021

Brilliant, lustrous yellow crystals of Wulfenite in perfect, undamaged condition, in a cluster with no matrix. The front or logical display side is very sharp, glassy and sits well on its own, presenting a well-defined main crystal 2.2 CM across at the top. The backside is less lustrous, but it has several large compound or twinned crystals in a pleasing cluster. There is no matrix at all this is pure Wulfenite and amazing for such a delicate piece that it is pristine. From the important new finds at La Morita, this locality has recently produced a sizable number of excellent pieces which allows these to be very reasonable in cost. When the first specimens were found this level of quality was very rare and prices were several times higher. We hope the locality will continue producing for a while but inevitably it will be finished of course. This one is far better in person and an excellent value for the find and for the specie.
