Item details

*This is a small specimen--please read dimensions carefully!*

What a show-stopper! This is a small mineral specimen of vanadinite crystals, one of the brightest and most dynamic of minerals. It features a bladed matrix of white barite, which contrasts beautifully with the tiny and larger red hexagonal crystals. This is a very pleasing little specimen, and would make an excellent addition to any display or specimen collection.

*Vanadinite is quite brittle, so care must be taken during display and handling. It also contains toxic elements, so please wash hands after handling.*

Locality: Mibladen, Morocco.
Dimensions: 1.25" x 1.00" x 0.75" (31mm x 26mm x 19mm)

Vanadinite is a lead chlorovanadate mineral, a member of the apatite group, with a hardness of 3. It is very dense, and most often forms these lovely hexagonal crystals. Vanadinite is a secondary mineral, and generally develops in the alteration zone in massive hydrothermal replacement deposits. Associated minerals include galena, wulfenite, and barite. Barite (or baryte) is a barium sulfate, which is related to celestine, anglesite, and anhydrite.

Vanadinite is believed to enhance meditation, sharpen mental clarity, and assist in the definition and pursuit of life goals. It is also associated with physical energy and vitality. Barite is believed to enhance dreams, inner vision, and achievement of life's goals.
