Vandanite crystals on Matrix -Morocco
Locality: ACF Mine, Mibladen Mining District, Midelt Province, Morocco
Vanadinite is a mineral composed of lead vanadate (Pb₅(VO₄)₃Cl). The percentage composition of vanadium in vanadinite can vary, but typically it ranges from around 18% to 19% by weight.
The vandanite crystals, typically prismatic and ranging in color from reddish-brown to brownish-yellow, are beautifully embedded in a matrix of other minerals. The matrix may consist of quartz, galena, barite, or other secondary lead and vanadium minerals commonly found in the region. The ACF Mine is renowned for its exceptional vandanite specimens, often exhibiting well-formed, lustrous crystals that stand out against the contrasting matrix. These specimens are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts due to their aesthetic appeal and the locality’s reputation for producing some of the finest vandanite specimens in the world.
