From one of the most famed of all Wulfenite localities comes this lovely example of a fine US gem material.  This mine is named for the exceptional color of specimens (and occasional gem rough) found there - an unbelievably intense orange-red color.  Color intensity and saturation are off the charts here, you will literally see this color from across the room.  A very rare, flawless gem of over 1 1/2 carats.  Cutting is all important with these and this one is simply dazzling, full of fire and bright.  Rough is only very rarely available - these are so hard to come by in today's market.
