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 is an exemplary, aethetic, group of superb quality, rich red color, razor-sharp, very lustrous, broad / thick hexagonal crystals free of matrix. The largest Vanadinite measures a full 2.7 cm across. Great aesthetics and good quality all around! Just a few little nicks, but still a great showy Vanadinite specimen from this most famous of localities. BETTER IN PERSON. Valued at $3,500 for superior color, quality and robust crystals. This is old material dating back to the early 1980s, the likes of which is rarely seen on the market today.
