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.
Barite is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate. The barite group has baryte, celestine, anglesite & anhydrite. Barite is mostly white or colorless, & is the main source of barium.
This is such a beautiful & gemmy piece. This is the type of piece that I would imagine finding in a treasure chest at the bottom of the sea! I love the cubic structure of the gems & the glassy luster that they have.
Vanadinite is an excellent crystal for writers who want to get a lot done. It will stimulate you mentally & will help you to improve your energy levels to achieve your goals. This is a great stone to help you to get things done, & is especially helpful when you have a big work load ahead.
