Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #18-AX-11-227
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
4.7 x 3.8 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $290


Elongated orange Wulfenites crystals free standing on a mixed matrix of Mimentite and gossan. From the epic discoveries in 2017 at Mina Ojuela, this sweet miniature has fine color, luster and is in excellent condition. This was a large find and produced a lot of specimens but few small pieces presented this well.
Mimetite and Calcite over Wulfenite
stock #AC-036
Mina Ojuela, Mapimi
Durango, Mexico
3.9 x 2.8 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Spring 2020

A super choice old Wulfenite found over 40 years ago with rare green color. The Wulfenites blades are likely a transparent yellow color inside but the overgrowth and inclusion of green acicular Mimetites adds the coveted green color. The Wulfenites are also overgrown with clear Calcite and some reddish Calcites on the ridges aded a nice color contrast. In excellent condition, these are almost never available. Displays well on several sides, the main crystals are complete and undamaged but there is a peripheral broken blade seen on just one side. Excellent bright sparkling esthetics and a nice addition to any serious Wulfenite suite.
Wulfenite "windowpane" type
stock #19.1-994
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
1.8 x 1.6 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160


A smaller thumbnail that has a super presentation. Two main Wulfenite windows are nicely perched on a sliver of crystalized Calcite matrix. Very tiny balls of red Mimetite add color so that at certain angles the Wulfenites are a more reddish or yellow depending on the perspective. In fine condition as seen, this looks great from several angles. The Rowley mine tended to have smaller and more delicate Wulfenites but they could be incredibly esthetic. A choice little piece with more display impact than might be expected.
SOLD Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #SOLD 18.1-551
San Carlos Mine, Municipio de Maunuel Benavidas
Chihuahua, Mexico
4.7 x 3.3 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $0


Gem clear, sharp and glassy bright red Wulfenite from the new find (2017-18) at the San Carlos Mine. The Wulfenites are associated with small balls of Mimetite that are both yellow and Orange in color. The large main crystal is 1.5 CM diagonal and sits perfectly on the matrix. Some bits of adhering matrix and tiny contacts are noted but not significant, and there is no chipping or damage on any of the main crystals. The Wulfenites at San Carlos were mostly yellow and orange but a few reds were found, this is in person a super intense red color as fine as any top Red Cloud Wulfenite. The crystals are unusually transparent and have brilliant luster on the faces. Better in person.
Wulfenite with Mimetite
stock #15.1-861
Rowley Mine, (Reliance Mine), Theba, Painted Rock District
Arizona, United States
1.7 x .9 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $340


Small but incredibly esthetic, a perfect window pane Wulfenite with a single bright red Mimetite ball. From the last work at the Rowley Mine which is now closed for safety reasons, this is a classic association. Very few of these were in such perfect condition. The color, form and condition of this are top quality, despite the small size this has a big visual impact. In person the color and luster are more vibrant than the photos show. This specimen is understandably delicate but is still shippable.
Wulfenite
stock #18.AX-128
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
3.3 x 3.2 x 3.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $160
Spring 2019

A nice pretty small miniature Red Cloud Wulfenite matrix with a free standing main crystal that is a deep red-orange. The standing crystal is damage free, this is an esthetic small piece that could be trimmed to fine thumbnail if wanted. From a small scale mining attempt in 2017. The matrix is not the crumbly sort and has many small Calcite crystals scattered as well.
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.
