On a base of white barite crystals rest dozens of deep orange-red crystals of vanadinite. They are well formed flat (tabular) hexagons with varying shapes, and their color varies from orange on the smallest crystals to a very deep red-orange (with a black look to the surface) on the largest crystals. They are translucent with a vitreous luster. THere is a patch whee the smaller crystals do appear black, and in general this is a very nice example of vanadinite.
