Gorgeous, mirror-bright, partially gemmy, brick-red vanadinite crystals compose this striking specimen of solid vanadinite from a NEW Moroccan find. The sharp, hexagonal crystals range from tabular to very blocky and a large, blocky edge crystal reaches 2.3 cm! This is a near floater specimen, with only a couple points of attachment on one side. A few broken crystals in the recessed center of the front are noted and the crystals on the back are coated. This remains a stunning, highly representative example of the species and new find and it won"t cost you an arm and leg.
