A crust of loosely-intergrown Vanadinites covers most of the barite base of this hand specimen. These Vanadinites do not exceed 0.2" (5 mm) in diameter but are in excellent condition and have excellent hexagonal tabular form. Their color ranges according to their size- the larger crystals having a deeper orange-red color- and their luster is adamantine where they are not covered with a thin, dull coating that I cannot identify. The barite base is made up of intergrown clusters of thin blades that are also in excellent condition.
