A killer Vanadinite. This delicate thin sprire of dark matrix has dozens of sharp red crystals in a sparkling confusion. This is from a recent small find produced from single pocket. Small stalactitic based Vanadinites have been seen from time to time over the years but I have never seen any so very long, slender, perfect and esthetic. The source for these had attributed them only to Mibladen area (but without a mine or area). However, to many collectors it seems far more likely these are from Taouz due to the habit, matrix, form etc. We have visited both mines and I agree that these specimens match more perfectly the style of the best Taouz pieces and differ greatly from Mibladen. For this reason we are posting these as Taouz but I must acknowledge we may be wrong and perhaps a totally different type of Vanadinite was recently found at Mibladden. Our sources from Mibladden agree. No matter which locale, the form, luster and presentation of this piece is exceptional. In clean perfect condition this displays fine on every side. Brilliant.
