1.45" Yellow Wulfenite Crystals - Lucin, Utah

This is a 1.45" long specimen containing thin, yellow wulfenite crystal clusters on a limonitic matrix. The specimen was collected from the Tecoma Hills molybdenum and zinc mines in Lucin, Utah. This specimen makes an interesting addition to any collection, with its contrasting colors and textures.

Wulfenite is a lead based, molybdate mineral with a chemical formula Pb(MoO4). It forms as a secondary mineral in the oxidation zones of hydrothermal lead deposits, with coloring ranging anywhere between yellow to bright orange and red, and occasionally brown. Typically forming as tabular, stubby or pyramidal crystals, this unique mineral can be both brilliantly transparent and opaque.

While these crystals are safe to hold, due to the fact that they are lead-based, washing your hands following handling is strongly suggested.
