Wulfenite on Mimetite -New find
stock #18.1-546
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.
Wulfenite with Calcite & Mimetite. - New find
stock #18.1-552
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.4 x 2.3 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $390
Dec 2018

From the exciting new finds at the San Carlos Mine, choice gem clear Wulfenites resting on glass clear Calcites and yellow Mimetites balls. The Mimetites are also included inside the Calcite, especially impressive under magnification. In perfect condition by naked eye, micro damage can be seen at 20X magnification, this is certainly not significant and is essentially perfect especially for this delicate mineral habit of the beveled edge blades. We have handled a lot of this find and this habit, color and association is unusual and very esthetic. Better in person too.
SOLD Wulfenite on Quartz- new find
stock #SOLD 18.1-544
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.9 x 3.4 x 1.7 CM (small miniature)
price: $0
Dec 2018

From an exciting small new (2018) find, bright gem Wulfenites set on contrasting Quartz crystals. In excellent condition as seen, this has top transparency, bright luster and is overall super esthetic. From San Carlos, a mine only known for Vanadinites that had come out almost 20 years ago. Choice and pretty, we hope to see more from here but nothing is ever certain in guessing the future of a particular locale. This is one of the very best specimens of about three hundred produced.
