Wulfenite on Mimetite -New find
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.2 x 2.6 x 1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $1250
Dec 2018

A killer toenail of fine orange-red Wulfenite with perfect, textbook form. The contrasting matrix of Mimetite adds a great contrast. From the new find at San Carlos Mine, this is unusual as it is perfect, undamaged and well trimmed. This was a small but important find, the mine previously was known only for some fine Vanadinites decades ago, these new Wulfenites were a big surprise. This was the best in this size that we saw and it is much more impressive in person. Can be trimmed to a fine competition grade thumbnail, but certainly looks fine as is.
