This cabinet-sized specimen consists of several dozen tetragonal tabular Wulfenites that extend from a rusty, calcareous base. These crystals are generally in very good condition, though some of them are broken and incomplete, and reach lengths of nearly 0.5" (1.3 cm). All have excellent form and the standard orange color and bright pearly-to-vitreous luster, and are transparent and quite clear, though some are internally fractured. They rest on a white calcite crust that partly covers a base rock of gray limestone and red-brown goethite/limonite.
