12-10. Vanadinite #1.
Vanadinite. Ancient lores say its crystal is beneficial to writers and boost creativity. They could add Kabuki opera and Juggling, so elegant and dynamic is its geometry and perfect prismatic hexagonal structure!
Vanadinite is unusual as a mineral as it’s only occurring as the result of alterations to a pre-existing material. Its bright-red and orange crystals often come perfectly formed and are sought after by many collectors.
It was first discovered in 1801 in Mexico. Vanadinite deposits have since been found in South America, Europe, Africa, and North America.
