A very aesthetic and classy Moroccan specimen of glassy and gemmy, two-toned, red and black, vanadinite barrels to 1.0 cm jauntily set on contrasting, matte-black, botryoidal goethite crust from the limited finds in the early 1980s from Taouz. A limited amount of fine vanadinite came from Taouz. Ex Steve Smale Collection. traded to me 6.7 x 4.3 x 2.5 cm
