Wulfenite with Calcite, Quartz etc
stock #18.1-283
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.2 x 4.9 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Late Summer 2018

Dozens of lustrous wet-look Wulfenites are clustered in recesses on a complex matrix. Several of the Wulfenites are transparent on close exam, and they contrast well with the Calcite, Dolomite and a few colorless Quartz crystals. Most of the specimen is in fine condition but close (10x magnification) finds some small areas of chipping. By eye a strong display piece with good contrast and color. Ex Immer Cook collection, this was obtained from Schortmanns Minerals more than 40 years ago.
Wulfenite -classic
stock #13.1-079
San Francisco Mine, Cucurpe
Sonora, Mexico
3.2 x 2.5 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $725
Late Summer 2018

A large complete crystal (with several coating both sides) in fine condition from the famed finds at the San Francisco Mine, Sonora, Mexico. Colorful and transparent, the luster is glassy and the lack of damage is remarkable. These Wulfenites with large crystals like this were all collected more than two decades ago. They were (and are) very fragile, so fine complete larger crystals were uncommon. A choice and showy crystal, these have gotten very expensive and harder to find.
Wulfenite coated with Calcite/ Cerussite
stock #8.1-346
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, China
3.4 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $450
Worldwide mix summer

Free standing bright red Wulfenite crystals are epitaxially coated by a layer of Calcite. A few small flat white micro crystals are also included in the coating that had been x-rayed as Cerussites, but we have also been told there is some disagreement on that result. Either way, the specimen is very esthetic and this is a striking arrangement. In excellent condition as seen, this is from a find in 2010.
HOLD Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #HOLD AX-21-049
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
3 x 2.8 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Worldwide mix summer

Fine, colorful, delicate and in pristine condition, this is a bright and attractive miniature. From the final mining efforts at Rowley, a choice specimen from this modern classic locale. Transparent windowpane blades standing on contrasting Mimetite matrix. Some of the cryastals have a deep red center zone. Displays well from several angles, this is delicate but shippable.
Wulfenite
stock #15.1-541
Chah Milleh Mine, Anarak Dist., Nain Co.
Esfahan (Ishfahan) Province, Iran
3.3 x 1.9 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $95
Worldwide mix summer

A cute thumbnail of the orange-red Wulfenites from the 2015 find in Iran. These crystals are remarkably similar to Red Cloud mine Wulfenites but the matrix is a little more complex and has many tiny Wulfenites with different habits. The main Wulfenite is contacted/ chipped on its bottom edge so this is not for a perfectionist but the contact is where this would sit and so is not visible under most display conditions. The price reflects this. Good color, transparency and sharpness.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #18.1-278
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
2.2 x 1.4 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
Worldwide mix summer

A sharp windowpane type Wulfunite crystal on matrix that is dusted with tiny Calcite crystals. In fine condition despite the delicay of the piece, the crystal has a more red color seen from the back and a more yellow-orange from the front.
Wulfenite -with Descloizite coating
stock #AX-10-167
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.3 x 7.8 x 3.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $425
Spring update

A sparkling coating of Descloizite on tabular habit Wulfenites that make up a large part of the matrix here. Very distinctive form and well exposed crystals make this a unique and remarkable specimen. In fine condition overall, this is from the 1960 era, and clearly not like most Los Lamentos pieces. The coating is on all sides except at the small point of attachment at the "bottom", in a few zones some of the orange color of the Wulfenites can be seen.
Wulfenite- on Calcite
stock #13.1-076
Sierra de Los Lamentos, Municipio de Ahumada
Chihuahua, Mexico
4 x 3.7 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $90
Spring update

Cute orange to chocolate brown tabular crystals of free standing Wulfenite with glassy luster. Older Los Lamentos specimens like this are quite different from later finds. The main crystals are in perfect condition but chipping exists on the small crystals in outer areas. Choice, affordable small miniature from this classic location.
