Vanadinite is usually bright-red or orange-red in color, but it can sometimes be brown, red-brown, grey, yellow, or even colorless. Its distinctive color makes it super popular among mineral collectors. Its streak can be either pale yellow or brownish-yellow. It can be transparent, translucent or opaque. Vanadinite is an uncommon mineral, only occurring as the result of chemical alterations to a pre-existing material, like in this case, to barite.
