Erupción Mine (Ahumada Mine), Los Lamentos Mountains, Mun. de Ahumada, Chihuahua, Mexico
A great thumbnail of two rare items – elongated, prismatic wulfenite and endlichite, a rare arsenian form of vanadinite. These wulfenite crystals are not the thin, brittle tabular wulfenites so common on the market today. These pieces are prismatic and taper to points or beveled edges. They are yellow at the center with darker brown hues at the terminations. In between these crystalls are groupings of round and dark brown endlichite crystals. Please note the dimensions as this is a thumbnail piece as most of these pieces were. I believe this was mined in the 1970s, and it is from an older collection.
