A bright, two sided plate that hosts several fine gem clear crystals. In excellent condition as seen, all the crystals are well-formed and isolated. A small version of the "front" has the uncommon white matrix of crystallized Prehnite that gives a fine contrast to the Garnets.

Gemmy, sharp and colorful, these garnets are a bright tangerine to pinkish in hue. These contrast with the green Diopside crystals that cover the display face.

price: $280
Fall 2015

A colorful, bright and fine small miniature of glass-like Vesuvianites from the Jeffrey Mine. The color, luster and esthetics are excellent. This quality in a cabinet specimen would be several thousand dollars. Some areas of contact are noted with magnification and some old recrystallized breaks as well. All the main crystals are pristine and undamaged. Better in person

Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-510

Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 2.2 x .8 CM (miniature)
price: $220
Fall 2015

Green crystals of translucent Vesuvianite with zones of red-pink on some tips in a spray or treelike cluster. A nice, esthetic example - sadly with some tiny chips (not easily seen but they are there) that keeps the price low. A good, colorful display specimen from the best locale (Jeffrey Mine) that looks like it costs a lot more.
