1.7" Lustrous, Red-Orange Wulfenite Cluster - Kuruktag Mountains, China

This gorgeous red-orange-brown wulfenite crystal cluster comes out of the Kuruktag Mountains of Xinjiang, China. The site these wulfenite crystals come from is known as "Stone Crack", and is not to be confused with the famous nearby Jianshan Mine.

It has been mounted to an acrylic display base with mineral tack.

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, its color 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 we strongly recommend washing your hands after handling.
