Wulfenite -classic
stock #13.1-079
San Francisco Mine, Cucurpe
Sonora, Mexico
3.2 x 2.5 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $725
Late Summer 2018

A large complete crystal (with several coating both sides) in fine condition from the famed finds at the San Francisco Mine, Sonora, Mexico. Colorful and transparent, the luster is glassy and the lack of damage is remarkable. These Wulfenites with large crystals like this were all collected more than two decades ago. They were (and are) very fragile, so fine complete larger crystals were uncommon. A choice and showy crystal, these have gotten very expensive and harder to find.
Wulfenite and Barite
stock #Alec -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.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #Alec 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 #Alec 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!
