VANADINITE ON BARITE

$1,000.00
$1,000.00

Bright red vanadinite on top of bladed barite, all on a large host rock. Many of the barite blades are coated with growths of a black mineral, which I'd assume to be goethite though I can't say for sure. Keep in mind that the standing position we put the piece in for photography isn't super stable; the bottom could be trimmed relatively easily to make it sturdier at the cost of losing some smaller vanadinite crystals on the bottom end.
