Moroccon Vanadinite is unbeatable for its color and crystal size and shape. It is near perfection for the mineral. On the other hand, the Moroccon flooded the market and the stuff is all over the place. I can baely give it away. That's why this one is offered the price it is. I'm hoping to have somebody that is just starting out in the hobby purchase this specimen and add a nice colorful piece to their display.
