Mibladen, Morocco
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 6.8 x 2.7 cm
Discrete crystals of lustrous, translucent, tabular to equant, reddish-brown vanadinite, to 1.5 cm across are emplaced on matrix. Most of the crystals are doubly terminated, with gemmy yellow-orange highlights on the edge faces. 2 minor abrasions have taken place on a couple of crystals (as you can see from the top-down stark view shown) but this does not diminish the overall visual quality of the specimen when displayed in person at a tilted angle, and in context with the reduced price. In fact, I just snipped off the left-side damaged crystal while writing this and so only the one damaged spot, more subtle, at bottom, remains. Really quite a good, showy specimen for such starkly isolated crystals, for the price range!
