Though the richly saturated red-orange stones from Arizona are likely more well known, this exceptional lemon yellow is every bit as impressive and rare for gem Wulfenite.  Think a color more like the very best Anglesite or an impossibly fine yellow Sapphire.  Vivid seems the only appropriate word.  Of course, we don't even need to mention how special this becomes with Wulfenite's dispersion and luster.  Make it a stone of over 2 1/2 carats and you have a dazzling collection piece.  Absolutely perfect cutting and just a very fine few specks of 'dust' that are lost in the brilliance of the stone.  We have only see one of two of these equal in color over the years, they are supremely rare.  Not inexpensive, but a one-of-a-kind beauty.
