Item Description

Moroccan Vanadinites simply are the finest examples of the species extant. The best pieces still command a premium on the market, even though specimens are still being found to this day. This piece features excellent, red, sharp, lustrous, tabular, hexagonal crystals on bladed white Barite matrix. The largest Vanadinite measures 8 mm across, and these crystals show a strong red hue, with very little in the way of brown overtones. A very good quality cabinet sized display specimen of Vanadinite from this most famous of localities.
