Orford Nickel Mine, St-Denis-de-Brompton, Estrie
Quebec, Canada
4.5 1.9 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $280
new year 2021

A cluster of yellow-green Diopside crystals with a brilliant luster and sharp form. From the well-known Orford Nickel Mine, this specimen was in the Warren Johansson collection it is a 1960's vintage piece. This is very well defined for this locality where most of the green or "Chrome" crystals are frozen in matrix or are much smaller and incomplete. The locality was also known for some large Diopside crystals with a tabular habit and a brown color. This habit is completely different, transparent to translucent and not often seen.In good condition, one termination is contacted but the others are sharp and well-defined.
