Vesuvianite - purple phantom
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.5 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An especially bright and lustrous specimen of gemmy Vesuvianite with rare phantoms of deep purple enclosed by a lighter green exterior. In very good (but not absolutely perfect)condition, what looks like damage in the photos is actually reflections inside these glass-clear crystals. There is some outside edge damage and contacts/chipping that can be best seen with magnification, so not for ultra perfectionists, but this habit with bright color phantom is very rare. This is an excellent example.
