Wulfenite- Classic locale, complete single crystal
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
2.1 x 1.8 x .4 CM (thumbnail)
Rich red, lustrous and in very good condition, this is a fine thumbnail from Red cloud that is fully terminated on all sides. Complete crystals like this are quite rare. There are two tiny (under 3 MM) areas of attached matrix that were the points of attachment for this to form from, a near perfect "floater". One tiny contact from another Wulfenite is noted on one side but no chipping or damage. An American classic with textbook form.
