An exceptionally rich and aesthetic vanadinite specimen from the J.C. Holmes Mine of Arizona. Highly lustrous, translucent, orange-brown vanadinite prisms to 1.3 cm cover all sides of this striking, sculptural piece. Nearly a floater, there is only one small point of attachment. Old-time material from the Charlie Freed Collection and self-collected in the mid-1960s.
