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.

Outstanding quality for a vanadinite that's not from Morocco. Great specimen!

Thank you Tobi. Arizona has actually produced some very good Vanadinite's over the years. They are just getting harder to find.

Note From Evan Jones -
I researched Ray Archambeau and he was a prospector who lived in Congress, AZ. He passed away quite awhile ago. Apparently he found the coppers (1990) with a metal detector while looking for gold. This was a one time find with an interesting history.
