Arizona -Red Cloud Mine, La Paz County

Recently, I had the chance to visit the Red Cloud Mine and collect minerals. I was fortunate enough to leave the site with a few nice wulfenite specimens and very fluorescent willemite. Here are the samples for you, if you would like to acquire a nice, reasonably price specimen from this very famous location.

  • The calcite and quartz-lined vug on the top of this matrix contains a number of beautiful, sharp, wulfenite crystals with orange-red colour. The vug also contains significant fluorite and one patch of beautiful, colourless willemite crystals. The matrix is laced with fluorescent fluorite and willemite. Very colourful under the U/V lamps. As well, one vug has nice, sharp hemimorphite crystals. Really nice specimen!

  • This specimen is listed as a primarily willemite specimen since it is loaded with sharp, hexagonal, prismatic crystals of willemite in many cavities. It also has a 7mm wulfenite that is very sharp but intergrown with oxides at the showy edge. There is another nice willemite crystal but it is loose but captive and rolling around in a different cavity. The willemite crystals are the best feature here since the crystal shape is so good and defined! VERY fluorescent green and purple!

  • This is not an actual specimen. It is a sample entry to show you what the fluorescent willemite looks like at this mine. It fluoresces a deep green colour as you can see in the matrix picture. It is similar in the micro-photographs but for some reason I have not been able to capture that colour with my camera through the microscope. They show as a blue-white colour in my photos. Just so you know, they are actually green! The willemite occurs as both acicular crystals and as sharp hexagonal prisms.
