This small thumbnail piece consists of a cluster of parallel-growth Vanadinite prisms. These thin crystals are in excellent condition and reach lengths of about 6 or 7 mm. All have excellent hexagonal form and a brown color and adamantine luster. A small amount of colorless calcite or quartz is present, I can't tell which. The piece is affixed inside a plastic thumbnail box.
