Vesuvianite
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 2.2 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

A really attractive piece with an unusual composition. A small "mountain" of tiny Vesuvianite crystals (mixed green, purple and pink) are the base for a single gem clear crystal jutting out of the summit. A bright, high luster piece that is unlike any other we have seen. In very good condition, a few crystals show some breaks that recrystallized. Micro level chips exist that are not seen without magnification. The summit crystal is especially clear and perfect. This is the kind of specimen that helped make this closed mine a world classic.
