Vanadinite, Los Lamentos, Chihuahua, Mexico, Eric Petersen Collection, 2.5 x 3.0 x 4.0 cm, $18. Online 6/2. SOLD
Los Lamentos is one of the top locations in Mexico. An amazing amount of material came out from the 1960s-1970s from this location, so much in fact, that a lot of it was brokered either by the flat or even by the pound. This miniature sports the chocolate brown elongated crystals of vanadinite formerly known as 'endlichite'. There are a couple of broken terminations on one side (if ti does not sell I'll probably trim it to a T/N). Mined c. 1970s. Eric Petersen Collection.
