Mineral Spot: Wulfenite...

Wulfenite is a lead molybdate mineral that usually forms as flat tabular crystals, less commonly as bypyramidal crystals, and often as combinations of the two. This one is a bit unusual in that it is almost 50/50. It comes from Whim Creek in Western Australia, one of Australia's best locations for wulfenite.

It is also another specimen that will be included in one of my auction lots next week at OZtion...
