Mibladen, Morocco
Miniature, 5.25 x 4.0 x 3.5 cm
Complete floater composed of only solid vanadinite, this outstanding miniature features lustrous and translucent, gear-shaped, reddish-brown crystals reaching 2 cm across.Orange to yellow gemmy highlights are present along with incipient hopper growth. Most of the crystals are doubly-terminated. There is on the base of many crystals, a lustrous secondary phase of vanadinite while on the back side (out of view) is a non-lustrous tan phase. Just a superb miniature of unusual habit
