Here is an outstanding specimen of orange WULFENITE on QUARTZ. This piece comes from the Manhan River Lead Mine, in Loudville, near Easthampton, Massachusetts, USA. This ancient US mine opened in 1680 and was worked intermittently until 1866, when it closed. Besides producing what are arguably the best wulfenites east of the Mississippi, the mine is perhaps best know for its fine pyromorphites. This piece was collected in 1969 by John Marshall. John and I wrote an article about the Manhan Lead Mine that was published in Rocks and Minerals in March/April, 2011. We acquired this piece at the East Coast Gem, Rock & Mineral Show from the dealer who purchased John's collection.
