1.7" Orange Windowpane Wulfenite Cluster - Rowley Mine

This is a cluster of small, bright orange windowpane Wulfenite crystals on matrix from the Rowley Mine in Arizona. The specimen is 1.7 x 1.4" in size, and is very eye catching. Most of the crystals are full and intact, however there is some slight chipping on a couple of crystals.

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 their being lead based, washing your hands following handling is strongly suggested.
