Vesuvianite with Diopside
stock #17.AL-492
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4 x 3.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $2800
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer miniature with top color, great esthetics, sharp gemmy crystals and in perfect condition. This is almost all Vesuvianite with a scattering of gemmy Diopside crystals that add a nice contrast. The deep green Vesuvianites are all with the pointed terminations and have gem clarity. This quality was rare and special when the mine was working but is now almost never available. Far better in person this piece really glows in any display.

Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-494
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
6 x 4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $975
pre Tucson 2015 update

A glassy luster yellow-green cluster of sharp and partly gemmy Vesuvianites. The overall arrangement and esthetics are very attractive, this really displays well. Most of the crystals are sharply terminated and damage free, but a few show re-crystallization on old broken surfaces, this can look like damage on a quick glance but it is not. Were it not for the recrystallized zones this would be a far more expensive specimen. Avery good value for the size, color and esthetics.

Grossular gem grade with included Clinochlore
stock #17.AL-487
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2 x 1.6 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $850
pre Tucson 2015 update

A pretty and fine specimen that is a rather hard to describe and to photograph. A cluster of transparent garnets with a tiny bit of matrix. It is easy to see the matrix through the clear Grossular, and with magnification individual crystals of Clinochlore and what looks like Diopside can be seen inside the crystals. Undamaged, clear and with very, very glassy luster, this has outstanding deep color and is far better in person.

Diopside (gem clear) with green Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-490
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
5.3 x 3.9 x 4.1 (cabinet)
price: $1950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer quality gem clear Diopside cluster with a light sherry color is perched on a contrasting matrix of white Diopside and bright green Vesuvianite. In outstanding condition this has fine eye-catching esthetics, showing the tabular crystals in a perfect stack. Good Diopside from this locale is sought after, these are very uncommon in such quality and condition as they are fragile. An excellent addition to any suite from Jeffrey Mine and a a fine Diopside from any place

Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-493
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.

Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-485
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 1.7 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Brilliant form and esthetics, this is gemmy Vesuvianite of top quality, would make a fine competition thumbnail. The transparent green crystals are far more glassy in person, and the arrangement of radiating prisms is very organic looking. The display impact for the size is remarkable.

Vesuvianite with Aragonite and possibly Pectolite
stock #17.AL-484
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $350
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unusual and attractive combo, bright yellowish-green crystals of Vesuvianite are scattered on a branching crystals that were previously identified as Pectolite but now seen to be at least in part Aragonite or similar Carbonate. We have just sent off a sample for analysis to confirm. Both the Vesuvianite and the Pectolite/ Aragonite are in excellent condition- no damage can be found even with 40X magnification, which is incredible for such delicate minerals. The Vesuvianites are perched so that it is easy to see they are doubly terminated.

Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-483
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $500
pre Tucson 2015 update

This is an intense electric pink Vesuvianite, undamaged and sparkling bright. The matrix is micro-crystallized Vesuvianite also but a light mint green color which makes a nice contrast. This color Vesuvianite is quite rare and this is a very esthetic piece with a lot of impact for the size.
