Layman's explanation: Wulfenite was named after FX Wulffen who was an Austrian mineralogist. It was first discovered at lead mines at Bleigerg in Carinthia in the 18th century. Wulfenite is a minor ore of lead and found in hydrothermal replacement deposits. It is usually just a collection piece given that it comes in beautiful yellow, orange, red, white, and brownish crystals. Bright yellow wulfenite crystals are found in New Mexico and Utah while red crystals are found in Arizona.
