RM1979   Vanadinite with Baryte

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

Floater specimen. Excelent 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. Crystals size is remarkable. A piece with two faces. One of them, crystals are disposed in an isolated way on a barite lenticular rosette crystals. In the other, they are forming rich crystalline groups. The presence of this baryte matrix is highly appreciated by collectors and gives to the specimen a special aesthetics.

RM477   Vanadinite with barite

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

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. They are disposed very aerial on a lenticular barite crystal matrix. The presence of this barite matrix is highly appreciated by collectors and gives to the specimen a special aesthetics.

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: 5,5 x 2,8 x 1,9 cm.
Main crystal: 9 x 8 mm.
