May 2018 Update





OKP-385     Wulfenite on Fluorite    Silver Thread Mine, Tombstone, Cochise County, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This is one of those really unusual mineral specimens... a very uncommon species combination, great, historic location, crystallization front and back, and wonderful condition.  The piece measures 7.1 x 5.5 x 2 cm.  There is no damage that I can find on either side.  There is a very tiny amount of mineral tac on back.  This is a really nice Arizona specimen.  $550







OKP-386     Wulfenite     Los Lamentos Mountains, Chihuahua, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  Although this one looks like it is from Tsumeb, it is simply a less common form from this prolific location.  It is 3.8 x 2.4 x 1.2 cm and has nice, well formed, lustrous crystals to .8 cm on edge.  This is a damage free pice with only a couple of micro contacts.  $80








OKP-387     Wulfenite     Melissa (Geronimo) MIne, La Paz County, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  This 6 x 3.9 x 2.4 cm piece is studded with brightly colored, high luster crystals on a plate of quartz.  The crystals speak for themselves.  The back is crystallized by an unknown species which is in radiationg balls of clear/ white crystals.  They look like gypsum but I am unsure.  The piece sits on the only contact nicely and views well from every side.  Minor mineral tac on back of specimen.  With magnification I can find one crystal that shows chipping on one edge.  Outstanding condition.  $350







OKP-388     Wulfenite and Dioptase    Mammoth-St. Anthonys Mine, Tiger, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  The piece measures 5 x 4.8 x 3 cm.  There is lots of damage which is the norm for the locality.  Sits on edge for display.  There are also a couple of other species present that I am unable to identify.  $100







OKP-389     Wulfenite on Barite?   San Pecho, Conaletos, Mexico.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  These are attractive, translucent crystal that are thick and well formed.  The specimen measures 4.8 x 3.4 x 2.7 cm.  No damage.  $175







OKP-390    Wulfenite?!     Duval Mine, Mineral Park, Mohave County, Arizona.  Ex. Caroline Les collection.  I'm at a loss on this one... are the wulfenites the acicular white crystals or the metallic crystals that almost look like anatase?!  9.2 x 6 x 3 cm.  The tags say it was found in 1980 and x-ray confirmed as wulfenite by Bill Panzner.  It is more a reference piece to me but some Arizona collector or wulfenite specialist will cherish this one.  $125
