RM1771   Vanadinite

ACF Mine, Mibladen, Khénifra, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Excellent specimen of vanadinite formed by several medium-sized crystals, on which groups of larger crystals have been grown. They show the shapes of the hexagonal prism, with slightly striated faces, and with smooth pinacoidal faces. The brilliance and color are more than exceptional. It presents a very intense garnet red color in the central areas of the prism and a redder tone in the pinacoids. Under the incident light it is spectacular. This specimen comes from the ACF shaft, in Mibladen, and was mined on February 6, 2018 and we were very lucky to be there. Pieces with this crystal size and quality are very unusual...
