Mibladen, Morocco
Large Cabinet, 16.7 x 8.4 x 8.4 cm
Almost covering the underlying matrix is a rich carpet of equant, lustrous, deep-red vanadinite crystals, reaching 1.5 cm across. Most of the crystals are doubly terminated and some also show a cogwheel or gear-like form. A notable large cabinet specimen! Facing back, away from the display face on the rear of the crystals, many exhibit a beige, powdery secondary coating of vanadinite which does not detract from the display face. In general these crystals are extremely robust and lustrous. There are on all the plate just a very few, small, insignificant bits of damage amidst over 50 sharp crystals. A very impressive large cabinet specimen for the price!
