A finely-textured, massive to microcrystalline, brown to orange descloizite carpet hosts clusters of nearly metallic vanadinite crystals. The vanadinites reach a few mm in length, and under magnification their true green-brown color is seen (they are probably arsenatian vanadinite). All of this sits on a friable gossan matrix. Displays brilliantly from several angles. No damage. Add a splash of color and texture to your mineral cabinet!
