Small cabinet specimen of Wulfenite covered with lustrous, very nice, brownish red Calcite crystals to 2mm. The Wulfenite plates were large and over 2cm. Scattered about are lime green acicular crystals of Mimetite. It is a fascinating specimen especially under the scope. I have not seen this paragenesis from Ojuela before. It was previously from the Al Kidwell collection purchased in 1966.
