CV20 - Wulfenite on Mimetite - SOLD
San Carlos Mine, Manuel Benavides Municipality, Chihuahua, Mexiko
Size: 3 x 2.7 x 2.4 cm

Wulfenite is loved! This is a gorgeous miniature from San Carlos Mine, Mexico. The crystals have a fiercy hot orange colour, almost red, very unusual and rare. It just glows in the light, the best term to describe it is maybe bright neon-orange. The main crystal is gemmy and fat, it measures 6 mm in thickness. Just perched on top of the specimen, the aesthetics could not be better. The botryoidal mimetite matrix makes this a truly outstanding combination. Great condition and very eye-candy!
