Item Description

Another fine large vanadinite specimen from the Jeff Kremer Collection of Dallas. Highly lustrous, partially translucent, reddish-brown, textbook hexagonal prisms are richly festooned on both sides of the elongated sculptural mounded matrix. The largest crystals, to 2.0 cm, are dramatically set along the skyline and really enhance the overall aesthetics of the piece. The vannies on the back side have an oxide coating, typical of specimens from the 2016 find. Overall, this large, very showy, densely crystallized piece is in excellent shape, with only one bruised crystal in the middle of the front and modest basal periphery wear. Jeff was the 2018 Tucson Show Desautels Award winner for Best Minerals. Classic, rich, aesthetic and excellent large Mibladen vanadinite from the 2016 pocket find of this varietal.
