Mibladen, Morocco
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.7 x 2.7 cm
A single giant composite crystal, 3 cm across, forms the core of this piece. very big and impressive crystallographically, it dominates the specimen. As with much of this pocket, the backside is covered by an oriented secondary growth of powdery brown vanadinite. None of this spills over to the side or front, all of which are lustrous faces. From the sides, you see the robust habit and super glassy luster with yellow-orange flashes that will make this pocket remembered. From the side, the crystals look like cogwheels.
