Bronze Wulfenite

Wulfenite
Lead Molybdate, PbMoO4

Wulfenite is an uncommon mineral generally considered to be of secondary origin. This mineral forms as crystal aggregates of various colors and is associated with a large number of base metals and other minerals.

David Michaels provided this comment:
"The Wulfenite is from a 1960+s find at Tsumeb. Tsumeb has yielded Wulfenite in almost every color, but this bronze stuff is truly unusual."
