Vanadinite is a lead vanadate chloride that belongs to the Apatite group of minerals. Vanadinite is usually red which the other members of this series and apatite group usually are not. These transparent to translucent stones also occur as orange and occasionally grey and brown. Vanadinite's classic crystal habit is short hexagonal prisms terminated by a pinacoid, or flat basal face. These crystals are wider than they are long and are more blade-like than the barrel shaped crystals so common to the Apatite Group minerals. The high vitreous to adamantine lustre and generally deep red colour give vanadinite a nice appeal to mineral collectors.
Vanadinite can be found in the USA, Mexico, Namibia, Zambia and South Africa.
The mineral was earlier described as a chromate by Andres Manuel del Rio, who discovered it in Mexico in 1801. In 1830, the metal vanadium was discovered and vanadinite got its identity.
If making crystal water with this stone use the indirect method as it is poisonous due to its lead content. Wash hands after using this stone and keep away from children and pets.
