RM1259   Wulfenite

Jianshan Mine, Ruoqiang, Bayin'gholin, Xinjiang, China

Group of very sharp and tabular wulfenite crystals, with an excellent brilliance, color varies between orange to red and from translucent to transparent. They are disposed very aerial on a matrix of goethite. Main crystallographic forms we can be observe are the first and second order tetragonal pyramids, truncated by the pinacoidal faces. These specimens often have some crystals with small breaks, in this sample there is only a small fractured crystal, not visible. It is one of the most complete and damage free specimen I found.


Size: 4.0 x 2.5 x. 2.0 cm.
Main crystal: 7 x 7 mm.
