Detailed Description

Group of excellent vanadinite crystals with nice colour and some tan mixed in, giving a cool almost "frosted" appearance in a few places (you have to angle it to see that - you can also angle it so that you see almost none of that effect.  The largest crystal is 1.0 cm across.  Great piece! 

About these Vanadinites and the ACF Mine Workings

These are top quality miniature specimens of vanadinite crystals from the Mibladen Mining District, the source of the world's best vanadinite. They are from one of the main localities for the vanadinite specimens, known as the ACF Mine Workings - underground tunnels and workings, created by specimen miners in search of vanadinite. These workings are accessed from the original ACF Mine incline/shaft. If you'd like to see more about the Mibladen Mining District, including photos of some of the vanadinite workings, see Morocco: The Northern Sahara and the Atlas Mountains (Part 2). (Note, the big hole depicted in the first photograph in the other half ot the article - see Part 1 -  is also a vanadinite specimen-mining operation.)
