Mibladene (Mibladen; Mibladan; Miblanden), Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province, Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Cabinet, 12.2 x 7.8 x 6.7 cm
Small but INCREDIBLY, SUPERBLY GEMMY deep-red hexagonal vanadinite prisms on a beautifully contrasting matrix of black manganese-oxide coated Baryte from Mibladen, Morocco. These are WAY-ABOVE AVERAGE vanadinite crystals on a CABINET specimen. MUCH BETTER In PERSON! I do not think I have ever seen vanadinite crystals of this quality before. the small size makes it not significant for the species per se, but gram for gram they would have to be the finest vanadinite crystals around 12.2 x 7.8 x 6.7 cm
