clusters come from Mibladen (at he Adeghoul and Les Dalles Mines) and Touissit, Khénifra Province, Morocco; and thick, stocky crystals from M'fouati, in the Congo. A classic locality that produced crystals of Wulfenite with lighter color than other occurrences is Tsumeb, Namibia.
There are many important specimen-producing localities in Mexico, though the best are Villa Ahumada, Sierra De Los Lamentos, Chihuahua (as thick, blocky crystals); the San Francisco Mine, near Cucurpe, Sonora (as thin transparent yellow crystals); and the Ojuela Mine, Mapimi, Durango (as elongated rectangles and tapering prisms, often associated with green Mimetite
In the U.S., virtually all notable Wulfenite localities are in the state of Arizona. Strikingly bright, reddish-orange crystals are world-famous from the Red Cloud Mine in the Trigo Mts, La Paz Co. Tabular
, Orange-yellow Wulfenite came from the Rowley Mine, near Theba, Maricopa Co.; and lustrous crystals from the Old Yuma Mine, Tucson Mountains, Pima Co. Glassy, gemmy
crystals have come from the 79 Mine, Hayden, Gila Co.; and nearby at the Finch Mine in a unique habit of Quartz
coating the Wulfenite. Tabular
crystals came from the Mammoth-Saint Anthony Mine, Tiger, Pinal Co.; and the Glove Mine, near Amado, Santa Cruz Co. Dense, tabular clusters of Wulfenite were found in the Defiance Mine, Gleeson, Cochise Co.; and an old-time Wulfenite occurrence is the Hilltop Mine, Rustler Park, Cochise Co.
Outside of Arizona, Wulfenite is not common in the U.S. Thick clusters come from the Stephenson-Bennett Mine, Doña Ana Co., New Mexico; and paper-thin crystals were mined at the Tecoma Mine, Lucin, Box Elder Co., Utah.
