DescriptionRARE GEMSTONE: YELLOW WULFENITE - 6.63 CT.
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region (Oshikoto), Namibia
Wulfenite was first described in 1845 and named after a renowned Austrian mineralogist of the day: Xavier von Wulfen. Wulfenite is a secondary Lead mineral that has been a coveted material by collectors from all over the world because of its bright, lustrous crystals. This fine specimen came out of Tsumeb, which is known for producing very fine examples of Wulfenites. Occasionally some crystals are large enough and transparent enough to be facetted into gemstones. This golden yellow stone is one of those rare gemstones. It has very high dispersion, giving off a rainbow of colors, and is a custom cushion shape and step cut. Given the soft nature of this rare gemstone, it is in very good condition, very transparent and gemmy.
