An exceptionally dense, one-of-a-kind grouping of vanadinite crystals from the well-known locale of Mibladen, Morocco. While most specimens that come out of the region show vanadinite spread out along a piece of host rock, this piece consists of one massive, complete cluster of multiple generations of crystals with minimal matrix. One can certainly tell when feeling the weight! The crystals themselves are tightly interlocked with all different shapes and sizes, giving it a unique, almost etched appearance, with color ranging all the way from crimson red to beige to black.
