2.6" "Sandwich" Wulfenite Crystals On Matrix - Ojuela Mine, Mexico

This is a very interesting cluster of tabular, zoned wulfenite crystals from the famous Ojuela Mine of Mexico. They formed from a rock matrix and many of the crystals are in excellent condition. These unique crystals, which have earned the nickname "Sandwich Wulfenite," are a fairly new find, and there is a limited quantity on the market. Some of the crystals are coated in an unknown tan-brown mineral.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

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.
