Western Union Mine, Mohave County, Arizona, USA
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.0 x 1.6 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Beautiful cluster of lustrous doubly-terminated prisms of a most unusual habit for Vanadinite. The crystals, which range up to .8 cm in length, have a lovely rich red color and a uniform bright luster. The overall aesthetic appeal is excellent, and it is even better than the pics convey. I admit that I had never seen material from this mine before, but here you have it! I am now told that these were not from the 60s as previously stated but rather: They were collected in 1988 by Mark Hay, Dick Morris and George Godas.
