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.
Wulfenite -Thin habit bright red
stock #8.1-366WAM
Jianshan mine (stone crack), Ruoqiang County, Bayin gholin prefecture
Xinjiang, China
6.2 x 5.3 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
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 with Calcite, Quartz etc
stock #18.1-283
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
8.2 x 4.9 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $375
Late Summer 2018

Dozens of lustrous wet-look Wulfenites are clustered in recesses on a complex matrix. Several of the Wulfenites are transparent on close exam, and they contrast well with the Calcite, Dolomite and a few colorless Quartz crystals. Most of the specimen is in fine condition but close (10x magnification) finds some small areas of chipping. By eye a strong display piece with good contrast and color. Ex Immer Cook collection, this was obtained from Schortmanns Minerals more than 40 years ago.
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 coated with Calcite/ Cerussite
stock #8.1-346
Tuokexun (Toksun) Tulufan Prefecture
Xinjiang, China
3.4 x 3.3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $450
Worldwide mix summer

Free standing bright red Wulfenite crystals are epitaxially coated by a layer of Calcite. A few small flat white micro crystals are also included in the coating that had been x-rayed as Cerussites, but we have also been told there is some disagreement on that result. Either way, the specimen is very esthetic and this is a striking arrangement. In excellent condition as seen, this is from a find in 2010.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #18.1-AX-21-049
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
3 x 2.8 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $420
Worldwide mix summer

Fine, colorful, delicate and in pristine condition, this is a bright and attractive miniature. From the final mining efforts at Rowley, a choice specimen from this modern classic locale. Transparent windowpane blades standing on contrasting Mimetite matrix. Some of the cryastals have a deep red center zone. Displays well from several angles, this is delicate but shippable.
