Vanadinite, Goethite
Taouz, Er Rachidia Province, Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Miniature, 4.5 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm
Fine cluster of rich orange-red Vanadinites on grey-black Goethite. These Vanadinites have the unusual opaque red-orange caps that contrast so nicely with the lustrous and gemmy side faces of the crystals. The largest of the crystals is .8 cm across. The aesthetics of each crystal, as well as the overall specimen, are very good. Ex. Steve Smale Collection.
