Wulfenite w. Calcite & Mimetite
stock #AX-31-101
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
4.6 x 3.5 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $400
pre Tucson 2015 update

Small but brightly colored, delicate and quite esthetic, this is a complex and interesting Iranian specimen. From small scale collecting at this long abandoned mine, this has a great display look for its small size. Nestled on several of the Wulfenites are micro gemmy bright red crystals that have were originally thought to be Mimetites but some analysis have shown up as Fornacite.
Wulfenite w. Calcite
stock #AX-31-096
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
5.9 x 3.5 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $880
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very different style and look for a Wulfenite specimen. One of the most exciting habits to come from the new finds at Ahmad Abad are the Wulfenites partly encased in calcite. The stepped forms and geometric structures make an esthetic and sculptural specimen. In excellent condition with just some very minor chipping that is not seen on display. An exotic location and a great addition to any Wulfenite collection.
Wulfenite with Fluorite and Calcite
stock #AX-29-063
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
5.2 x 3.4 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $420
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, sharp, complete Wulfenite perched on a contrasting matrix that includes pale purple Fluorite in small spheres. An unusual combination from the famed Red Cloud Mine, this is quite esthetic and eyecatching. The main Wulfenite is 1.3 CM across and deep orange-red. Displays well, no eye visible damage but some very tiny contacts noted at 10X magnification. Good value.
Wulfenite & Mimetite
stock #AX-18-071
Ojuela Mine, Mapami
Durango, Mexico
6 x 3.5 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $950


A bright, delicate and colorful Wulfenite with rare greenish yellow color. Bright green balls of Mimetite decorate the piece from from Vintage 1960's finds. Despite the exceptional delicacy of this piece the condition is quite good, there are some broken parts of a few crystals but they can be minimized or hidden by display angle. Overall this has a of of impact for its size. This color and habit are no longer available, something special for any Wulfenite suite or Mexican suite.
Wulfenite and Barite
stock #AX-22-072
San Francisco Mine, Cucurpe
Sonora, United States
5.3 x 4.8 x 4.1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $440
Spring 2014

A sharp and very esthetic specimen in above average condition. Crystals of glassy yellow Wulfenite to 2.5 CM are intermixed and nestled amongst blades and rosettes of pale blue-white Barite. Great contrast and a good display piece from a modern classic locale. Some edge chipping (as is typical in these) but is not very noticable.
HOLD Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #HOLD AX 22-069
San Francisco Mine, Cucurpe
Sonora, Mexico
5 x 4.4 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $330
Spring 2014

A complex, pretty jumble of sharp lustrous bright orange Wulfenites with lots of Mimetite balls mixed in. Way better in person, a modern Classic! Above average quality but this has edge damage and chipping as usually seen on these delicate specimens. Not for perfectionists, however the damage is not glaring, overall condition is much better than typical, and the price is far less as a result of it. In most displays the piece will look like a much more expensive specimen.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock # AX-22-079
San Francisco Mine, Cucurpe
Sonora, Mexico
4.9 x 4.2 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $1100
Spring 2014

Lots of display impact and color in outstanding condition. This has remarkable pristine condition, architecture and the composition is top notch. Classic San Francisco Mine Wulfenite with tiny orange balls of Mimetite and a big transparent "window" crystal on top. The larger crystals are gemmy yellow with deep orange phantoms near the centers caused by the Mimetite. Since these are notoriously delicate most show lots of damage but not on this piece, the main crystals are perfect and complete. Vintage about 1998, if ordering please select the more expensive shipping option which includes full insurance. This can be carefully packaged and shipped safely BUT If ordering from out of the USA be aware there is a high risk of damage if opened for customs inspection!
Wulfenite with Calcite
stock #AX-2-016
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.4 x 6.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $975


A fine and showy classic Los Lamentos specimen of lustrous butterscotch to orange wulfenite scattered on contrasting sparkling calcite. The Wulfenites are very sharp and glassy, reach 1.5 CM plus and are in some cases selectivly coated on the edges with a rind of calcite crystals. From an older collection, this is a less common style of Wulfenite for Los Lamentos, probably from the deepest zones. The major crystals are perfect damage wise, but some edge zones have minor damage showing. Despite this, for such a delicate, older specimen this is in exceptional condition and displays well.
