A gorgeous specimen of highly-lustrous, sharp orange wulfenite crystals to 1 cm on sparkling pale pink crystallized smithsonite matrix from the Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Namibia. A very pretty Tsumeb specimen in fine condition, and actually a complete “floater” with good crystals on all sides. From the noted collection of William “Bill” Severance of West Grove, Pennsylvania, and before that, in the collection of the University of Delaware Mineralogical Museum, with label.
