This mineral ordinarily crystallizes as thin, beveled, square plates that have a resinous to adamantine lustre, and they are yellow to orange in colour. Wulfenite was named for Franz Xavier Von Wulfen, an Austrian mineralogist. It occurs as a secondary mineral in oxidized hydrothermal lead deposits. 

 

My favorite part about this specimen in particular is the texture that the tabular crystals form. This would be another great piece to add to your mineral collection or to use for decorative purposes.
