Vesuvianite -textbook crystals on matrix
Sierra de la Cruz, Municipio de Sierra Mojada
Coahuila, Mexico
8.7 x 4.4 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $110
Spring 2017

These Vesuvianites are nearly all equant, doubly terminated with a textbook form. Well exposed by etching from contrasting white matrix these are a pleasing golden hue with lustrous surfaces. Back in the 70s these were all labeled Lago de Jaco, but now the correct locale is known to be Sierra de Las Cruz. Most crystals are quite perfect but several have cracked and rehealed or have cracked and split apart while inside the matrix. A good example with many small crystals up to 8MM.
