Wow!
Hexagons are more than one inch big! It must feel very heavy in hand!
A world class piece, best I've ever seen.
Thanks for sharing it.

What an incredible specimen, one of the best vanadinites I have ever seen! Is this in your own collection now, Roger?

Hi,
Yes, I saw many vanadinites of this origin on the stand of Jordi Fabre. Who else ? No, it’s not translucent.
I enlarged part of the photo taken on his stand. The hand is that of Jordi!
The perfection and size of the crystals is unimaginable. Jordi's thumb attests to this.
In Munich I spend a lot of time wandering among these exceptional stands every year since 1977 ! I still have many photos to offer, if you wish. Due to lack of time, I couldn't do it faster ...
Roger.
