Pectolite (unusual green) with Grossular
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
5.2 x 4.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1650
Spring update

Extraordinary mint-green acicular needle crystals form a sparkling mass on green and colorless Grossular crystals. This is the only example we have seen of green Pectolite from Jeffrey, or from anyplace for that matter. A few tiny Diopsides are also seen with magnification. Very bright and attractive. Some of he Pectolite needles are the typical white color close to the terminations but green near the base. Displays well from several angles, really different and special from the great Jeffrey mine.
