Item Description

Brick-red to reddish-brown, blocky, lustrous, translucent, hexagonal vanadinite prisms, to 1.2 cm, are festooned on this sculptural and impressive large vanadinite specimen from a NEW January, 2019 find at Mibladen! Some crystals have flashes of yellow-orange fire, adding pizzazz. Oxide coatings on larger compound crystals on the front, to 2.0 cm, add contrast. Scattered bruising is noted, but this remains a striking, highly representative piece from a brand NEW FIND. Here's your chance to obtain a large and rich vanadinite at a reasonable price point.
