Item Description

Mibladen is famous for its Vanadinites, and this miniature more than well-represents the species for this great locality. The hexagonal crystals have glassy to good luster, which greatly enhances the rich red color. Extensive, orange-red flashes indicate just how gemmy these Vanadinites are, and they range in size up to 1.2 cm wide and 1 cm thick. Their balanced distribution as they march across the blades of Baryte add greatly to the fine aesthetics that makes this a really special miniature out of the crowd.
