RM2097   Arsenatian Vanadinite

San Carlos mine, San Carlos, Manuel Benavides, Chihuahua, México

Rich group of sharp arsenical vanadinite crystals, with curved faces prisms, barrel-shaped and many of them doubly terminated, with the characteristic color of this variety. Two generations of crystals are observed, those of greater size opaque and with a brown tone, on which a second generation of transparent toasted honey tone crystals has grown, all very very brilliant. A pleasure under the magnifying glass. This mine is also known as Apex.

Size: 4.2 x 4 x 2.8 cm.
Main crystal: 9 mm.
