Crocoite and Vauquelinite (Tl)
Berezovsk Mines, Ekaterinburg, Sverdlovskaya Oblast', Ural Mountains, Russia
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 4.2 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda
This is an old, classic, and rare combination piece from Russia. The Crocoites are gemmy, deep orange-red, lustrous, and stout. The Vauquelinite, for which this is the type locality, is found in green microcrystal coatings to seemingly fibrous clusters. This is an important, and very hard to find, locality specimen.
