A few dozen small Wulfenite blades rest on the quartzite host of this hand specimen. These blades do not exceed 0.4" (1 cm) in length and are generally in good condition, as not many are damaged or broken. Their tetragonal tabular form is very good, with sharp edges and clean faces that possess a bright pearly luster. All have a moderate yellow coloration and are translucent, though a few appear to be dimly transparent. Another mineral is scattered around them- it is also bladed, but does not have the proper color, luster and form for them to be Wulfenites. The piece is affixed to an acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
