Several Vanadinite crystals rest on the botryoidal goethite base of this thumbnail specimen. Several have broken off at the goethite base and a few are lightly damaged, but they are generally in very good condition. The largest reach nearly 0.4" (9 mm) in diameter, and all have excellent hexagonal tabular form. They show a deep orange coloration and an adamantine luster on their prism faces, whereas their basal faces are generally rather dull. They are essentially translucent, though some transparent spots are visible. The goethite base has excellent botryoidal form and is black in color and generally dull in luster. The piece is hot-glued to a flat acrylic base.
