Description

The Wulfenite group is 11mm across. The crystals are sharp termianted, highly lustrous and they show this outstanding dark red color (my apologizes to Red cloud - but the crystals from Arizona were never that red). The contrast to light matrix is really amazing. No significant damages to report and very showy in various positions.
