Chromian Wulfenite
Chapacase Mine, Tacopillia Dist, Tacopilla Province
Antofagasta Region, Chile
2.5 x 1.7 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110
Dec 2018

A choice, rare example of the deep red Chromian variety of Wulfenite. Known from just three localities, the best specimens have all come from finds over 20 years ago in Chile. This piece is from those finds and shows classic form micro crystals on all sides of the matrix. Especially brilliant under the microscope this is in good condition and has well formed crystals with several habits densely encrusting. No eye visible damage but some micro chipping is found with 20X magnification on a few of the many otherwise perfect crystals.
