Grossular - fine Gem Garnet
stock #18-AX-31-006B
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.7 x 1.7 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $950


Bright, lustrous, colorful and incredibly well formed gem Garnet from the Jeffrey Mine. A tiny bit of Diopside matrix and a small side car crystal are the only additions. In fine condition as seen, a quite superb thumbnail with well defined striations and a glass-like look. Single complete and well isolated crystals of this size are especially desirable. There were never many of top quality Grossular when the quarry was working but now these are just never seen.
Vesuvianite -Gem clear
stock #18-AX-16-514
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.2 x 1.6 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $340


Thumbnail of Gem Vesuvianite that has an unusual side crystal. On this a slender off shoot crystal juts out at an angle. It is not so unusual to see very tiny crystals encrusting the sides of Vesuvianites but this sort of prismatic crystal is very rare. in fine condition as seen, no damage or chipping, a clean prismatic contact is on the back side of the main crystal. The Jeffrey mine at one time produced many good Vesuvianites, but very fine pieces were always rare, and now there are no more of any quality.
Vesuvianite -2 generations
stock #AX-24-172
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2.6 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $550


A killer for the size, this is a perfect 360 degree undamaged specimen of bright and colorful Vesuvianite. The main crystal is an intergrown cluster of striated green prisms that are all sharing the same termination. This is perched on some smaller green crystals which are partly coated with smaller light purple-violet Vesuvianites. These are also very lustrous and have lots of sparkle. Vesuvianites from the Jeffrey Mine are by far the most colorful and attractive of the specie. They are also wonderfully diverse and this one is quite unusual as well as a fine display piece.
HOLD Grossular -green zoned, rare red fluorescent
stock #HOLD 19.1-364
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.8 x 1.4 x .9 (thumbnail)
price: $190


Small but very impressive thumbnail of intense green Garnets sitting on a druze of tiny Diopside crystals. The Diopside is slightly greenish in color and is fluorescent a bright yellow while the Grossular (in 450 NM light) is a brilliant red. Even without this very rare response for a garnet, the specimen is super attractive, the Garnets are gem clear, lustrous, sharp and undamaged. From the great Jeffrey mine, this is a tiny treasure.
Prehnite -very well crystallized
stock #18-AX-24-496
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.6 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $480


Unusually sharp and transparent crystals of Prehnite in an esthetic cluster. The crystals are in fine undamaged condition and this specimen has a lot of display impact. The Jeffrey mine is famed for its Garnets and Vesuvianite but the Prehnites found here were world class and of incredible variety. This is an excellent example showing the elongated blocky form with a delicate light green hue. Even though Prehnite is not a rare mineral and is found worldwide, good sharp crystals are rare and these from the Jeffrey are unique. Not found for some years, these are modern classics and no others from elsewhere have this look and habit.

Quebec, Canada
2.3 x 1.2 x .8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $250
Spring 2019

A sharply terminated bi-color crystal of glassy Vesuvianite from the great Jeffrey Mine. Gemmy in some areas this grades from a light pink-violet hue to a green top. No damage and a good, affordable Vesuvianite with classic form.
Grossular and Diopside
stock #18.AX-24-481
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 2.3 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $360
Dec 2018

An attractive, complex specimen of lustrous cinnamon colored Grossular on prismatic Diopside crystals. A classic combination from the famed Jeffrey Mine. The Garnets are well formed and damage free, the Diopsides are well terminated with flat tops and also undamaged but are contacted on the outer edges. A choice miniature that has a fine color contrast. Better in person.
Grossular on Pectolite and Diopside
stock #18.AX-24-471
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 2.7 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $650
Dec 2018

Rare clear, zoned Garnets with green centers from Jeffrey Mine which are highly desired and unique to this legendary locality. In addition to being a choice and esthetic specimen these Grossular are vividly fluorescent, bright red in midrange and orange in longwave. In super condition even under magnification, this is a very fine example with a good mint green color overall even on the Pectolite and Diopside matrix. There was only a single find 30 years ago this type Grossular and is unique to the Jeffrey mine. A very choice miniature.
