Wulfenite, (w. Duftite)


Mineral: Wulfenite, Duftite
Chemistry: PbMoO4
Size: 85 mm

Very pale yellow, transparent, tabular crystals of wulfenite (to 12 mm), partly overgrown by knotty, botryoidal aggregates of bright green duftite (XRD verified), providing an aesthetic and distinctive contrast of both habit and colour.

The duftite is somewhat unusual in terms of the high lustre of the radial aggregates.
