Apache Mine (aka Defiance Mine) vanadinites are rarely available today. This is a large and very rich one, with the typically smallish (though not as small as most), very lustrous, deep brick-red color. Most Apache Mine specimens you see these days are not only smaller, but the vanadinite looks more like a druse - so this is quite impressive. Ex. Dave Stoudt Collection.
