This might be wulfenite. Is it possible to post a photo showing the entire specimen?

I was thinking wulfenite too, but I was expecting brown fluorescence. Can be an atypical vanadinite ?

I'm with Kevin C on this one...looks like Wulfenite.

I'll leave it to one of the Arizona/Mexico mavens to suggest where it may be from :-)
