  • This specimen features a concave opening in botryoidal/stalactitic goethite that has sharp, hexagonal crystals of vanadinite scattered about. The crystals are lustrous orangey crystals and are on the back of the piece as well. The light coloured patch at the front-left is an overgrowth of tiny calcite crystals. A handsome piece!
