Item Description

A beautiful classic vanadinite combination specimen consisting of many scintillating, sharp, well-formed red-orange color tabular, hexagonal crystals, aesthetically clustered on a CABINET matrix of classic, contrasting white bladed barite. The crystals reach 1.3 cm and these crystals are very gemmy, with brilliant flashes of yellow-orange. Excellent quality all the way around. These specimens deserve more attention for being some of the most impressive representations of the species extant. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!!
