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.

All prices in Canadian dollars. For payment in US$, deduct 18% or multiply by 0.82.

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.

  • 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.
