1.7" Yellow Wulfenite Crystal Cluster - Mexico

This is a cluster of thin yellow wulfenite crystals on a lymonite matrix, collected from Mexico.

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.
