Wulfenite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Stevenson-Bennett Mine, Organ District, Dona Ana County, New Mexico, United States <br /><br />2 3/4" Across <br /><br />This is the only wulfenite specimen from this rare locality that I have in fact EVER seen for sale. I first read about this locality in an article published in the "New Mexico" special edition of "The Mineralogical Record" magazine in 1989. At this time, my career as a mineral collector was in its infancy and it would be nine years later that I would visit the United States for the first time and to attend the Tucson Show. <br /><br />After I read the article, I wrote a letter to Betty Tlush of Albuquerque and inquired about the possibility of being able to acquire New Mexican mineral specimens including wulfenite and cerussite from the Stevenson Bennett Mine. Betty replied and informed me about the lack of availability of mineral specimens from this well known locality. Betty also referred to a some wulfenite specimens from the Stevenson Bennett Mine that she had encountered but they had only consisted of clusters of broken wulfenite crystals. Thankfully, this piece is in good condition. <br /><br />This fine quality and rare wulfenite specimen was acquired via a trade with Robert Lavinsky in September 2017. I value it very highly since I have a historical relationship with this locality via some of the first high quality mineralogical literature that I had mailed to my home in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. <br /><br />The photo and caption above were also supplied by Robert Lavinsky.</p>
