Speaker: Evan Jones
In 2017, SB-2092 was passed by the Arizona State Senate proclaiming the tetragonal lead molybdate wulfenite as the official Arizona State Mineral, joining turquoise as the Official State Gem, copper as the Official State Metal, and petrified wood as the Official State Fossil. In this presentation, we will explore why and how SB-2092 came to be, who was involved and why wulfenite was selected. Arizona boasts the largest number of world class wulfenite specimen producing localities and at last count well over 200 documented wulfenite occurrences in the state. We’ll delve into what are arguably judged the best wulfenite localities in Arizona punctuated with numerous site photos and specimen photos from top mineral collections.
