Item Description

A superb and aesthetic Mibladen toenail vanadinite specimen from the finds 15-20 years ago. This front of this striking, two-sided beauty consists of mirror-luster, brick-red, hexgonal, blocky, prisms, ALL of which, have GEMMY flashes of yellow and orange! The large dramatic crystal is 2.9 cm x 1.9 cm x 1.6 cm and has an exquisitely etched front and a fabulous rust-brown termination. The back is TOTALLY different! The color is carmel-brown and the large crystal is hollow, with skeletal features! From the major 1980s find here. Outstanding and exceptionally fine and gemmy material from this famous locale. Complete all-around and pristine. The attachment is at the base of the stalk. This is competition quality. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON - THIS IS NOT JUST AN AVERAGE VANADINITE! Valued at $400-600 and well worth it.
