Vanadinite, Goethite
Taouz, Er Rachidia Province, Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Cabinet, 9.6 x 8.1 x 5.9 cm
These old pieces came out in the 1970s. This is a really elegant example of the classic form of vanadinite found here, isolated sharp hexagons on contrasting black stalactites. The individual vanadinite crystals reach 5 mm in size, typical of this style and association. The matrix is actually goethite.
