Item Description

A classic and very aesthetic Defiance Mine wulfenite specimen. A rich jumble of highly lustrous, tabular, reddish-brown wulfenite crystals solidly fills the vug in the geode-like gossan matrix on this highly representative and showy specimen from this famous locale. Pieces of this quality were collected in the 1950s and 60s. Very few crystals are broken on this excellent piece, unlike most such pieces which have more damaged goods than whole xls to them. Ex Dave Stoudt Collection. Valued at $750.
