Description

This is among the very best wulfenite specimen I ever saw from Mezica. During the last years a lot of material was found - but not even one was close to the particular specimen. I would say much more than 90% show only intergrown crystals without any contrast to matrix. And this one shows really HUGE (2,1 cm across), well shaped and freestanding crystals - isolated or in small groups in great contrast to the dark grey matrix. I could not rank it high enough - the dimension is outstanding, the color is best, the contrast and the overall dimension of the specimen - this is museum size and quality and the crown for a collection of wulfenite!
