You get right down to it and look at this closely, it is a killer specimen. The Wulfenite is superb with beveled edges and measures up to 4.5 to 5mm or so. It's the kind of crystal you don't want to use a caliper on (LOL)....and of course those little orange balls are Mimetite which compliments the Wulfenite quite well. Anyhow, it's from Tombstone aka "The Town Too Tough to Die".
