20953: Vanadinite and Quartz
Silver District, La Paz County, Arizona
Cabinet - 11.0 x 4.3 x 2.9 cm (4.3 x 1.7 x 1.1 inches)
116 grams (0.26 grams)
Specimen status: Sold

Opaque but very sparkly brownish red vanadinite crystals nearly cover the display face of the matrix, with a lesser coverage on the back. Underneath the vanadinite carpet on the display face is an underlying crust of small, colorless quartz points. The previous collection label does not give a more precise locality, but probably from the Pure Potential Mine. A few incomplete crystals are noted but overall in quite good condition. Displays beautifully as shown on its naturally flat base without needing addition support.
