I think this is the favourite of the ones we collected. Nice orange-red crystals in a quartz cavity, along with some small willemite crystals. 9.0cm long.

This is the specimen that I am holding in my hands in the photo in page one. Very nice 7mm crystal in matrix that needs to be trimmed down.

An elongated, tabular wulfenite crystal on quartz-fluorite matrix. Love these elongated crystals!

OK< we didn't collect this one. I purchased it from Roger and it is now in my Arizona Cabinet. Love the contrast!

Maybe it is the result of too many lonely, quiet days out at the mine but Roger came up with the idea of hanging "Bob the Skeleton" out in the middle of nowhere with a sign beseeching people to have their picture taken and then post the picture to the Red Cloud Mine twitter account. We did and will!
