Item Description

A showy and excellent Mibladen toenail 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, hexagonal, blocky, vanadinite prisms. The crystals are reddish-brown on the backside. The blocky crystals have gorgeous flashes of yellow-orange fire, when viewed on end. Nearly a floater, it has only a small point at attachment at the base. The two small points of edgewear on the front are noted, but are very modest detraction. Every rotation gives a totally different perspective to this fine piece.
