Grossular with Diopside
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
6.3 x 4.6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
Spring update

An old and very unusual Vermont Grossular. From the now classic Mt Belvidere (Eden Mills) locale, these Garnets are a rare light orange hue on pale translucent Diopsides. Most Diopside at this location is a deep green and the Garnets are typically more dark red. Collected over 80 years ago this likely came from a quarry area that simply no longer exists. Ex Warren Johannson collection collected in 1937. At this time the locality was not well known and the major finds were many years in the future. Some chips on a few edges but most of the specimen is intact with many perfect crystals. This habit and style is almost never available except in old collections.
