Description:Moroccan Vanadinites simply are the finest examples of the species extant. The best pieces still command a premium on the market, even though specimens are still being found to this day. This piece features excellent red color, sharp, lustrous, tabular, hexagonal crystals measuring up to 7 mm. Most of the crystals are pristine, though I can see a few small dings. A good quality Vanadinite miniature from this most famous of localities. From the collection of Rolando Gioia (a contributor to new definitive book on Brazilian minerals: "Minerais e Pedras Preciosas do Brasil").
