Wulfenite, an amazing Tetragonal mineral, renowned worldwide for the amazing colour, is known to occur throughout the Tsumeb ore body, generally as tabular crystals varying greatly in size. Oftentimes the crystal edges are modified to show bevelled edges!

Psuedomorphs after Wulfenite are very rare, and known to include Smithsonite, Bayldonite, Conichalcite and Malachite.

The specimen for sale here shows the characteristic bevelled edges and sits well in a little matrix vug.
