Bronze 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."
