Item Description

Wafer-thin, nearly transparent, butterscotch-colored wulfenite crystals with orange edges are richly concentrated on one end of the sculptural gossan matrix on this excellent specimen from the famous Mina Ojuela of Mexico. The tabular crystals reach 1.3 cm on this classic Ojuela wulfie and the crystals are in execellent shape. Ex Lloyd Tate Collection and certainly a specimen from the 1960s or 70s.
