It characterized by the shape of their prismatic crystals, its high brightness and its specific weight.

 


MYTHOLOGY: The first discovered in 1830 in Zimapán (Mexico) was by Professor A.M. from Rio, he was a professor at the School of Mines in Mexico. The vanadium was discovered by scientist and naturalist Spanish Andrés Manuel del Río, who call him synonymous with "brown lead", in 1830 the Swedish chemist Nils Gabriel Sefström will change the name to vanadinita. The Vanadinite is named after the goddess of beauty in Scandinavian mythology "Vanadis".
