<<< BACK TO LIST
Grossular -unusually large, with minor Diopside
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 2.9 x 2.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $1250
new june 17

Big and fine, isolated Garnets to 1.5 CM (well above average for these) with excellent color and luster. In good condition overall, there is typical contacting on the backside and some chipping on one garnet but the largest main crystal is completely perfect. This could be trimmed to a competition grade thumbnail if desired but this small miniature size as is presents very well. A little addition of small Diopside crystals adds a nice touch. Classic form and with distinct separation of crystals that is so sought after from top grade Jeffrey Garnets. As the mine is now gone forever these have become almost impossible to get in good quality.
