ID: CC8159
A particularly fine specimen of classic Moroccan Vanadinite from the Mibladen mining area. Excellent bright pigeon blood-red hexagonal crystals of Vanadinite measuring to 1.2 cm are stacked one upon another all over the display area of a cockscomb white Baryte coated by a thin veneer of grey-black manganese-iron oxide.  The translucency of the Vanadinite crystals allows internal shades of golden peach and barley sugar orange to twinkle in transmitted light, so making this a most showy specimen. A later deposition of micro-crystals of colourless to milky-white Calcite has formed on some Vanadinite crystals.  A strikingly fine large miniature Vanadinite from Mibladen.
