Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af151a.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af151b.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af151c.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af151d.jpg] Azurite from Tsumeb, Namibia [db_pics/pics/af151e.jpg]

Sharp single crystal with good luster with another small crystal attached to one side. Crystal exhibits a bright electric blue color along edges when backlit and has areas of partial psuedomorphing to Malachite near the base. There are a couple small nicks on the edge, but they are really trivial and this is a very good crystal, ex. Carl Acosta collection.


AF165 - Vanadinite $ 3500 SOLD
Mibladen, Morocco
large cabinet - 20 x 14 x 8 cm


Vanadinite from Mibladen, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af165a.jpg] Vanadinite from Mibladen, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af165b.jpg] Vanadinite from Mibladen, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af165c.jpg] Vanadinite from Mibladen, Morocco [db_pics/pics/af165d.jpg]

Spectacular large Vanadinite specimen. Matrix is a brecia fragment that has been coated on all sides by Vanadinite. Crystals are bright red on all sides (none of the unwanted brown color that can be present on many of these) and the crystals have great luster. Crystal quality is way better than most. Most of the crystals are about 1cm in size, main cluster in center towards bottom has a crystal/crystal group 2.2 cm wide. Even when plentiful, Vanadinites of this size and quality are uncommon.
