This is wulfenite specimen from Vulture Mine. I took the pictures in garage when looking at a large number of specimens. Some of the specimens had gold evident on surface. Unfortunately I could not capture that with my camera and conditions.

Thought I'd contribute a few of my own that I think are interesting.

I apologize that I'm not positive on the ID of the green botryoids on the first, I believe they're Rosasite but cannot confirm.
