Description

This is one of four wulfenites on offer from my personal Mexican as I have decided to slim things down a bit. I thought long and hard about parting with this one as it was one of my first purchases when I decided to focus on Mexican specimens, acquiring in in the year 2000.  It consists of numerous, sharp mustard coloured wulfenite crystals scattered across the matrix. Very good condition for an old Ojula specimen.
