Exceptional, well crystallized specimen of Vanadinite from this locality known for it pyramidal terminations. This piece feature two long crystals to over 1.3cm each with numerous smaller crystals. Virtually no damage with a nice dark red color. These are incredibly difficult to come by. I never see these on the market and have only seen them in private collection. I stumbled upon this specimen by a chance stop at a rock shop in Globe on the way to Tucson.
