Vanadinite, Descloizite
Georgetown, Georgetown District, Grant Co., New Mexico, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 6.3 x 4.4 cm
A rare specimen of New Mexico vanadinite, and from the famous copper mining area that produces the copper pseudomorphs after azurite floaters, too. The crystals are brown with a tint of green, olive green perhaps. The beautiful sparkling druse underneath is descloizite, in burnt umber to blood red coloration. Ex. Harold Urish Collection.
