Colorless wulfenite?

Posted by Paul Gilmore

Can wulfnite be colorless? From a zinc-copper-lead-you name it mine in the Goodpsrings district of Nevada (the Yellow Pine Mine) I have countless minute crystals of a habit typical of wulfenite (square tablets with beveled edges), but are colorless and clear. I don't think it's hemimorphite.

Yes, wulfenite can be colorless.

Hi Paul,

Today, I've just added one photo to my gallery wich maybe could interest you to compare with you finds.

Not exactly colorless but milky & translucide.
