Grossular - gem clear, with Clinoclore
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3.6 x 1 CM (small miniature)
price: $825
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very bright, clear and perfect little gem from the great Jeffrey Mine. A fine small miniature / toenail, this could also be trimmed to make a competition thumbnail. The matrix is a mix of Clinochlore crystals and small clear Grossular that are pale pink or colorless. The main Garnet is cinnamon orange-red, well-positioned on the plate and is complete all around. You can see through it perfectly. Even before this legendary locale closed for good the Garnets had become scarce and very expensive when of top quality.This is far better in person and a real bargain for the quality and esthetics.
