Description

A fine and very nice, rare wulfenite specimen from this ancient mining district. The piece hosts 6, pristine crystals of tabular, lustrous, gemmy, reddish-orange wulfenite! This makes the piece even more rare as most wulfenites from Lavrion come along with a lot of damage. The largest crystal measure 4.5mm across which is a good size for the locality and the piece has a nice overall look.
