Wulfenite on Calcite
Jianshan mine (stone crack), Ruoqiang County, Bayin gholin prefecture
Xinjiang, China
9.2 x 4.3 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
new june 17

A thin plate of matrix hosts dozens of brilliant orange-red Wulfenites with a particularly bright luster. The contrast with the white matrix is excellent and the condition overall is very good, a few chipped crystals at the edges have to be mentioned, but the main central area is quite damage free. From the remarkable finds near Urumqi in Xinjiang. This specimen has not been damaged by cleaning in strong acids so the color and luster are well above average. A good value for such an esthetic piece.
