RM2284   Vanadinite on matrix

Coud'a 24m↓, Mibladen, Midelt, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

On a recent trip to this mining area, we found these new specimens with incredible aesthetics. They were found in a singular cavity, opened in the depths of a 24-meter well, in Coud'a shafts. They have a more than exceptional brilliance, probably due to a last phase of crystallization in which a thin layer of almost transparent vanadinite was deposited. Crystals are very well defined, with staggered axial growths in the prism and with color zoning, more orange than red. Contrasting on a solid rocky matrix. Vanadinites from the Mibladen area are well known worldwide and although we have seen many of them, they never cease to amaze us. Amazing specimens!


Size: 10 x 8.5 x 7 cm.
Main crystal: 1.2 cm.
