This specimen consists of at least 75% Wulfenite by weight. It occurs as rectangular tabular crystals that are rather thick for their size. One of the larger visible crystals measures 0.2 x 0.1 x 0.1"(5 x 3 x 2 mm). All are colored a dull orange, have a pearly luster, and are translucent. The specimen is damaged less than I would expect, and the crystals are well-formed. There is a small amount of a limonite host rock, but it tends to be in the crevices towards the center of the piece.
