Wulfenite (ex Ed Over, large compound crystal group)
stock #AC-419
Hilltop mine (Hand Mine),Rustier Park, Chiricahua Mts. Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
4.1 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $900


For this fabled location, this specimen is exceptional for size and form. Obtained by Ed Over in the 1930's for Arthur Montgomery and later sold by Schortmann's Minerals, this specimen stands apart from others. The Hilltop Mine in the Chiricahua Mts. is a long closed locale. Most Specimens have 1+ CM yellow crystals on matrix and are highly desirable (and expensive) when available. A few unusually large crystals were found but most were badly damaged or crudely formed. At over 4 CM across, this is the largest Hilltop crystal cluster I have handled. More orange than usual with a secondary druse of tiny bright yellow crystals that sets off the larger blades well. Unfortunately, chipping is visible along one edge but perhaps forgivable on a remarkable old classic.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-348
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
6 x 4.8 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $600


Rich deep orange color and glassy luster make this a very good eyecatcher. Crystals reach 2.4 CM in with many complete and well positioned. There is damage but in contect it is easy to overlook, yet it keeps this from a much higher price point.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-351
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
5.1 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A very cute and sparkling wulfenite cluster of delicate thin blades on a shard of matrix. some minor cerussite as well, but mostly wulfenite in crystals to just under 1 cm. Some chipped crystals can be found but as these are thinner than paper and incredibly fragile it is forgivable due to the many undamaged crystals. A very pretty Wulfenite for the price!
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-337
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
6.8 x 5.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $600


A very unusual and attractive Wulfenite of exceptional delicacy. This is an unusual habit for this find (and almost all wulfenite localities) that is a little like some older San Fransisco Mine and Tiger pieces, but not quite. This habit has irregular shaped blades with thin, tapered edges and seem to be complexly recrystalized and so seem very rounded and less geometric. The crystals are insanely thin sometimes thinner than a piece of paper. Consequentially there is edge damage in many areas, and some breakage but many of the larger crystals are relatively good and complete. For this ultra delicate style this is the best condition example I have seen, it A good piece for the collector who seeks the unusual and can accept some damage.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-342
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
4.9 x 4 CM (miniature)
price: $1250


Fantastic bright red-orange color and eyecatching form, this is a very 3- dimensional crystal cluster. There is almost no matrix, just interlocked bright wulfenite. Some damage can be found but not badly detracting most of the major crystals are quite good and the overall quality is fine. This wulfenite has unusual geometric outlines on some crystals that show complex parellel intergrowths. Good luster and presentation, a very good value.
Wulfenite
stock #8.12-366A
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
6.3 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $800


Outstanding glassy red Wulfenites cover a gossan matrix and reach up to 1 cm. Only a few broken crystals among dozens that are perfect. These delicate wulfenites are mostly gemmy all have vivid color. Some of the smaller crystals look much like Red Cloud wulfenites but the larger ones are thinner and more fragile.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-368
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
9 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


A sizable matrix covered with orange brown wulfenites that are very glassy on one side and coated with a rust like coating on the other. Delicate crystals to 1.4 CM (most are smaller) that are paper thin and sparkling. There are some areas of damaged crystals as can be seen in the photos, but many are pristine. Very good impact overall with sparkling glasslike blades and attractive color.
Wulfenite
stock #8.1-369
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
9.1 x 7.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $2200


Big, lusterous and colorful, this wulfenite has bright crystals reaching over 3 CM in size. Very strong visual impact, most of the largest crystals are also undamaged, and several habits can be seen. There is some damage but it is easilly overshadowed by very fine large red crystals.
