Old Yuma Mine,
This is a truly lovely specimen to explore and enjoy under small magnification.
The matrix displays a lovely coverage of deep orange/ red vanadinite crystals. There are two generations of crystal growth with the first being very small elongated prismatic crystals. The second generation of crystals have a shorter, blockier habit.
If you look closely you will see another difference in the crystals. Both generations display nice colour zoning, with the first having lighter ends and darker centres. In some of the second generation crystals this is reversed!
The specimen comes in its original ‘perky box’ with original hand-written label and collection number 1530.
Size: 23 x 22 x 7mm
Weight – 15.5gr incl perky box
Please note that magnification of 20x or greater is required to view these crystals effectively.
