Description

Intense orange crystals up to 16mm on edges set on very light calcite matrix. The crystals show the typical thick tabular habit and also typical – very nice texture on their sides. Very nice balance of crystal size to overall size. Looks exactly like I would wish a Wulfenite from this locality. Good quality, good color, fine contrast, already remarkable crystal size. No significant damages to report.
