Item Description

An impressive, rich and sculptural large wulfenite combination from famous Touissit. Rich butterscotch-yellow, translucent, tabular wulfenite prisms have sharp beveled edges and matte-lustre faces. The wulfies, to 1.3 cm, are richly and strikingly peppered on three sides of the vuggy, 3-dimensional matrix. Rich coatings of contrasting lustrous, glassy, off-white dolomite rhombs are a fine complement and typical accessory to this impressive large piece. See the 2013 Mineralogical Record article in Vol. 44, No. 6. Ex Richard Rossi Collection. Richard is a Senior Fellow of the Mineralogical Record. Classic, rich and showy large Touissit wulfenite combination material from 1970s to 80s finds, now long gone. The piece has several fine display views.
