Several Vanadinite crystals rest on the sparse black base of this thumbnail specimen. These crystals are in excellent condition- there is very little damage- and reach maximum dimensions of 0.5 x 0.4 x 0.2 (1.2 x 1.0 x 0.5 cm). Their hexagonal tabular form is exceptional- all edges are very well-defined, and all faces are clean and smooth. Their color is a deep orange with strong golden highlights, and all are translucent and contain patches of dim transparence that extend a short distance into each crystal. The base on which they rest is mostly obscured by the Vanadinite, but consists of a botryoidal goethite formation. The piece is hot-glued onto a flat, square acrylic base.
