Dec 2018

Brilliant red Wulfenites with a delicate, paper thin habit that are free standing on a gossan matrix. Choice and esthetic example from the earlier finds at Xinjiang. The centers of many Wulfenites have a zoned coating on one side of the crystal, but others are unzoned. The delicate thin edges are mostly intact and undamaged but there is some damage on a few spots which is almost inevitable with such thin crystals. The color is as brilliant a red as is possible.
Wulfenite on Calcite
stock #16.1-065

9.2 x 4.3 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
new june 17

A thin plate of matrix hosts dozens of brilliant orange-red Wulfenites with a particularly bright luster. The contrast with the white matrix is excellent and the condition overall is very good, a few chipped crystals at the edges have to be mentioned, but the main central area is quite damage free. From the remarkable finds near Urumqi in Xinjiang. This specimen has not been damaged by cleaning in strong acids so the color and luster are well above average. A good value for such an esthetic piece.
