Scores of small Wulfenite blades rest on the dark brown base of this specimen. These blades are in moderately good condition and do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in length or width and 1 mm in thickness. All appear to have excellent tetragonal tabular form, with sharp edges and clean faces that possess a subadamantine luster. Their black coloration is odd, and is caused by inclusions of manganese oxide. This piece was collected in April of 1991 and the locality is mentioned in the Mineralogical Record Vol. 14, page 300-301.
