A showy and excellent Mibladen miniature vanadinite specimen from the finds 8-10 years ago. The front of this multi-sided cutie looks like a cogwheel cluster of intergrown, highly lustrous, brick-red, hexgonal, blocky, vanadinite prisms. The crystals have more of a brown tint on the backside. The tabular crystals have gorgeous flashes of yellow-orange fire, when viewed on end. Every rotation gives a totally different perspective and the trivial bit of periphery wear is certainly not a detraction to this fine piece. The large crystal is 2.4 cm across and these sharp crystals have a very subtle, rounded component. Striking.
