Wulfenite with Tennantite

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC14924
A contorted, thick Dolomite cast encrusted with sooty black Tennantite has two areas richly invested with golden honey to dull lemon Wulfenite crystals in the form of slightly curved tabular blades of between 5 to 10 mm on edge. This is a terrific example of this habit of Wulfenite from the Tsumeb Mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia. The Wulfenite crystals have a good, yet slightly waxy lustre and contrast nicely against the black Tennantite covered matrix.
