One of the most beautiful specimens of Vanadinite in our stock, this cluster is made up of several dozen deep-red hexagonal tabular-to-prismatic crystals. They are translucent and have an adamantine luster, and their color deepens as their size increases. They range in size from 1-5 mm in diameter, and the largest crystals' edges grew more quickly than their basal faces, creating a hopper effect. Several crystals in the cluster are damaged or broken, but many more are intact. On one side of the specimen, tiny crystals of either calcite or, more likely, selenite grow adjacent to the Vanadinite cluster.
