A dark, calcite-rich matrix hosts a patch of tiny but quite sparkly, orange brown vanadinite crystals. The actual color is more brown and less orange than the photos on my computer suggest. The vanadinites range from opaque to transparent. Some are parallel to the matrix while others are more free standing. A treat under the hand lens, microscope lens, or camera lens. A few minor spots where crystals are incomplete.
