Mibladen, Morocco
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 7.3 x 3.0 cm
This 3-dimensional cluster is a near floater that can be displayed in any direction. The intergrown crystals to1.5 cm across, are nearly equant, doubly terminated, gear-shaped, lustrous and translucent, and reddish-brown in color. gemmy highlights of orange and yellow appear to emanate from the depths of the crystals. A secondary, lustrous phase of tan on the sides and bases of some crystals as you see, but all the main frontal faces are otherwise bright and lustrous. Definitely a top-notch small cabinet specimen of vanadinite, showing the unusual gear-like and robust style of this pocket.
