PostPosted: Apr 09, 2019 12:35    Post subject: Wulfenite USA  

Dear Mineral Friends,

I have another specimen from the same collector; labeled "Wulfenite USA".
I have no doubt about whether it is Wulfenite.
But the USA is big.

Is there anybody who can give me a clue about where this specimen might be mined?

Size: 6 * 5 * 1 cm.
Crystals are up to 8 mm.

Thanks,
Mathias

Your example is quite probably from Arizona. There are a number of mines in that state that have similar examples. One likely locality might be the Rowley Mine.

Go onto Mindat photo search and put in "wulfenite from Arizona". A whole lot of photos with localities will come up to look thru. BOB

Agree with John and Bob; Rowley Mine, Maricopa County, AZ. No question in my mind. Thanks for the good photographs...they make helping much easier.

yes, and the other give away are the small clear cubic xls sprinkled on the wulf.
