1.9" Orange Wulfenite Crystal Cluster - Morocco

This specimen is composed of small and medium sized wulfenite crystals. The matrix that holds the larger wulfenite crystals together is primarily comprised of very small wulfenite crystals. It was collected from Touissit, Morocco.

Wulfenite is a lead based, molybdate mineral with a chemical formula Pb(MoO4). It forms as a secondary mineral in the oxidation zones of hydrothermal lead deposits, with coloring ranging anywhere between yellow to bright orange and red, and occasionally brown. Typically forming as tabular, stubby or pyramidal crystals, this unique mineral can be both brilliantly transparent and opaque.

While these crystals are safe to hold, due to their being lead based, washing your hands following handling is strongly suggested.
