Vesuvianite -2 generations
stock #AX-24-172
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2.6 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $550


A killer for the size, this is a perfect 360 degree undamaged specimen of bright and colorful Vesuvianite. The main crystal is an intergrown cluster of striated green prisms that are all sharing the same termination. This is perched on some smaller green crystals which are partly coated with smaller light purple-violet Vesuvianites. These are also very lustrous and have lots of sparkle. Vesuvianites from the Jeffrey Mine are by far the most colorful and attractive of the specie. They are also wonderfully diverse and this one is quite unusual as well as a fine display piece.

Prehnite -very well crystallized
stock #AX-24-496
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $480


Unusually sharp and transparent crystals of Prehnite in an esthetic cluster. The crystals are in fine undamaged condition and this specimen has a lot of display impact. The Jeffrey mine is famed for its Garnets and Vesuvianite but the Prehnites found here were world class and of incredible variety. This is an excellent example showing the elongated blocky form with a delicate light green hue. Even though Prehnite is not a rare mineral and is found worldwide, good sharp crystals are rare and these from the Jeffrey are unique. Not found for some years, these are modern classics and no others from elsewhere have this look and habit.

Vesuvianite
stock #AX-32-089
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.3 x 1.2 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $250
Spring 2019

A sharply terminated bi-color crystal of glassy Vesuvianite from the great Jeffrey Mine. Gemmy in some areas this grades from a light pink-violet hue to a green top. No damage and a good, affordable Vesuvianite with classic form.

Grossular and Diopside
stock #AX-24-481
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 2.3 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $360


An attractive, complex specimen of lustrous cinnamon colored Grossular on prismatic Diopside crystals. A classic combination from the famed Jeffrey Mine. The Garnets are well formed and damage free, the Diopsides are well terminated with flat tops and also undamaged but are contacted on the outer edges. A choice miniature that has a fine color contrast. Better in person.

Grossular
stock #AX-24-261
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.4 x 2 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $360


A killer thumbnail of gem clear sharp Garnets that are well isolated and super lustrous. The crystals are unusually smooth without most of the usual striations so the faces are like windows looking into the crystals. In excellent condition, micro contacts can be found with 20X magnification but overall a perfect piece. A modern classic, this quality is far, far beyond the average yet still very affordable.

Grossular - gemmy
stock #18.AX-270
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 2.4 x 1.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $380


A super attractive Grossular from the great Jeffrey Mine. The matrix is all Garnet, a thin plate of transparent pale Grossular with a cluster of larger deep orange crystals that are very distinct and have fine luster. The main Grossular is 1.5 CM across and all gem. In fine condition this has a nice contrast and gives a good isolation to the main crystals.

Apophyllite
stock #AX-24-493
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 2.4 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $250


An excellent thumbnail of quite fine Apophyllite from the legendary Jeffrey Mine. World famed for the Garnet and Vesuvianites, Apophyllite is much more rare and almost never available. The crystal here is lustrous and has distinctive well formed striations and stands apart from the matrix well. An worthy addition for a Jeffrey mine suite.

Prehnite crystals covered by Grossular
stock #AX-10-842
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4 x 3.2 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $320
Late Summer 2018

A cluster of Prehnite crystals are almost completely covered with tiny colorless and white Grossular crystals. There are a few small areas of uncovered Prehnite where it can be seen that these are glassy and transparent. Colorless or white Garnet is very rare and the tiny Grossular here are nearly all transparent, mostly colorless with a few white translucent crystals. It is impossible to find this combination available unless from an oldcollections being dispursed.
