This specimen consists simply of three tabular Wulfenite crystals that are intergrown, one of which is only partially visible. The two obvious crystals intersect each other at about a 20- to 30-degree angle. They are huge; one measures 1.1 x 1.1 x 0.3"(2.8 x 2.8 x 0.8 cm), and the other measures 1.1 x 1.3 x 0.3"(2.8 x 3.3 x 0.8 cm). Their color is a dull golden orange, but one side of each crystal is stained a red-brown color from a layer of limonite. They have waxy luster on their main faces and a pearly luster on their edge faces, and show a very dim translucence. One of the crystals shows a small amount of damage and is missing a bit of material, but both are in very good condition and show good though uneven form. There are several small brown globular aggregates on their faces and edges that I believe are made of mimetite, but besides these and the limonite, there is no other material. These are the largest individual Wulfenite crystals that I have seen- they are exceptional!
