Vanadinite
Western Union Mine, Stockton Hill, Mohave County
Arizona, United States
2.7 x 1.7 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $130
Early summer 2021

Slender stepped Vanadinite crystals on a shard of matrix. Several of the crystals show a form much like a reversed scepter. A nice thumbnail from this less well-known mine in Arizona, the Western Union, (also known as the Western or Black and Tan). The long closed mine yielded some very nice small Vanadinites in several habits in the 1980's to some diligent collectors. However this is from a more recent collecting project and the habit of the crystals is noticeably different from the earlier finds. Choice thumbnail.
