RM472   Vanadinite with barite

Coud'a, Mibladen, Khénifra, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

One of the specimens with a exceptional color, excellent brilliance, a real gem. Very rich group of vanadinite crystals showing a defined hexagonal shape, with very well defined faces and edges, intense red color. Good brilliance and some transparence, with internal reflections between red and orange. Main crystals size are remarkable. Covering the barite matrix. The presence of this barite matrix is highly appreciated by collectors.

This sample was collected from one of these shafts where berber (amazigh) miners are working hard during months till they found a vug. This extended area, called Coud'a (Coudia), is located about half mile from well known ACF mine, but it is not the same mine.
The vanadinite veins mined in Coud'a, which are approximately 30 to 50 feet deep, are not the same than ACF mine and their particular mineralogy.

Size: 5,3 x 4,9 x 2,7 cm.
Main crystal: 12 x 9 x 4 mm.
Found in 01/2013.
