This rather odd cabinet specimen consists of scores of stubby, barrel-shaped Vanadinites that rest on a weathered barite base. These Vanadinites are of the arsenic-rich variety sometimes known as Endlichite and are generally in excellent condition. Their trigonal form is very good, and all have the habit of short, stubby prismatic crystals with basal terminations on each end. Their color is interesting; all have a pale gray "skin" surrounding a darker gray "core". Their luster is adamantine, and with their gray color, appears nearly metallic at times. All are completely opaque and rest on the barite base, which is partly covered with a thin, black crust of what is likely an oxide mineral.
