2.8" Bright Orange Wulfenite Cluster - Large Crystals

 
 
 
 
 
This is a exceptional, 2.8" wide cluster of lustrous, bright orange Wulfenite crystals on matrix from the Rowley Mine in Arizona. Excellent quality crystals with much less damage than is typically seen with these delicate crystals and are quite large.

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.
