Mibladen, Morocco
Miniature, 6.0 x 6.0 x 3.0 cm
Mother nature has perched this exquisite cluster of vanadinite crystals squarely in the center of its matrix. The crystals are mostly doubly-terminated and are equant, lustrous and translucent. They reach 2 cm across. Gemmy orange to yellow highlights emanate from the crystals and a secondary phase of lustrous, tan vanadinite on the sides and backs of some crystals gives the specimen even more character by highlighting the frontal faces. Mesmerizing for its geometry, this is a killer large miniature or small small cab! Pristine!
