At least 20 Wulfenite blades rest on the goethite/limonite base of this hand specimen. These crystals are generally in very good condition, though there is considerable damage and breakage in one area, and reach dimensions of 0.7 x 0.5 x 0.1" (1.8 x 1.3 x 0.1 cm). All have excellent tetragonal tabular form, a yellow coloration with a subtle orange tinge, and the standard bright vitreous luster. All are transparent and dimly to very clear, depending on the number of internal fractures that each contains. The Wulfenites are accompanied by hundreds of tiny, rounded mimetite nodules that are scattered among them.
