Vesuvianite (rare color, classic, closed location)
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.6 x 3.5 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1950
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense emerald green color (not the usual deep green) often labeled as Chrome Vesuvianite is one of the rarest and most desirable. Jeffrey Mine Vesuvianites are without peer in the mineral world, the color array is incredible and this green example is first rate. The main crystals are up to 2.5 CM, and doubly terminated but smaller ones are only singly. The terminations on most of the crystals are an unusual flat or multi-stepped type that may look like damage with a quick glance. There is some damage on this piece seen when studied carefully and some evidence of re-crystallization on a few zones. Still overall this is a fine display piece as nearly all of these that exist do have at least a little damage. Far better in person.
