This is a very large vanadanite crystal formation measuring just under an inch wide. It's nicely centered on a 4.6x3.8" matrix with a scattering of smaller vanadanite crystals surrounding it. It's pretty rare to see crystals this large, and it has excellent color and luster. Comes with a display stand.
