Jianshan Mine, Ruoqiang (Qakilik; Chaqiliq) Co., Bayin'gholin (Bayingolin; Bayinguoleng) Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang (Xinjiang-Uygur) Autonomous Region, China
A stunning, bright orange wulfenite specimen on matrix from the Jianshan Mine, Xianjiang Autonomous Region, China! This specimen features a grouping of large, thin wulfenite crystals of an electric orange color that have formed within white quartz. The quartz has been chemically etched away, revealing the wonderful orange wulfenite crystals beneath. The contrast of the orange wulfenite on the white quartz is striking. The entire assemblage has formed upon a black matrix, further adding to the contrast of color.
