Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, Uygur region, China
3.3 x 2.3 CM (thumbnail)
Quite simply a killer thumbnail / toenail. This is electric red with top glasslike luster and wonderful esthetics. The condition is exceptionally good too, there is outer edge chipping but the main crystals and display zone are quite pristine, For this find this is the closest to absolute perfection as I have seen. I was asked how this compares with other red wulfenites, so, for comparison I put this alongside a fine Ed Over vintage Red Cloud wulfenite. This is clearly a more brilliant red with less orange tones. This degree of brilliance and color intensity was only seen in a few pieces, This is the best Thumbnail I have seen.
