Wulfenite Lustrous, Pale Gold, Intergrown Crystals Very Fine Tn Tsumeb, Namibia For Sale
Please read this before offerding!
Micromounts are specimens which require magnification (sometimes a lot) for proper appreciation, so please be aware of this when purchasing and read the measurements of the specimen carefully to make sure you know the size of what you are ordering. Many of these specimens will not look like anything of value without good magnification!!
Thumbnail specimens are specimens that fit in a 1.25 inch (~3.3cm) plastic box, which should give you an idea of scale.
Up for sale is a 1.8 cm x 1.2 cm x 0.6 cm very fine thumbnail specimen of lustrous, translucent, pale gold, intergrown Wulfenite crystals with a minor green mineral attached to one edge (possibly Mottramite or Duftite) from famous Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia. This listing posted by Susan.

A note on IDENTIFICATION of rare species: unless I state otherwise, identifications of species are based on mine or my source’s visual inspection of the specimen. I don’t think most people bother to say anything about it, but this is normal with rare species, and you shouldn’t be fooled into thinking that just because someone says that’s what it is, that they are right. A knowledgeable collector with a good photo library and a good microscope can do amazingly well, but there is always a chance they are wrong. Even if a specimen has been analyzed by EDS, there is still often some uncertainty, as this technique only tells the elements present in the sample and perhaps the rough formula if the measurement goes well. It provides no data on the structure. I will try to note when there is significant uncertainty into the ID of a species. If you think one of my IDs is wrong, please let me know, so I can try to check it!
