Wulfenite with Quartz (Tsumeb, Namibia)
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia. 25mm x 15mm x 10mm (Thumbnail)
Wulfenite was only found up to 160m in the first oxidisation zone. While nothing close to the super large Wulfeninets recovered in the 1968 find, this specimen is still delightful. There are many little Wulfenites associated with the quartz all over the specimen, the larger cruystal obviously setting the scene for closer examnation to expose all of these. It comes in a perky box, measures just over 25mm across and 15mm high.
