Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-485
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.5 x 1.7 x 2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

Brilliant form and esthetics, this is gemmy Vesuvianite of top quality, would make a fine competition thumbnail. The transparent green crystals are far more glassy in person, and the arrangement of radiating prisms is very organic looking. The display impact for the size is remarkable.
Vesuvianite with Aragonite and possibly Pectolite
stock #17.AL-484
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $350
pre Tucson 2015 update

An unusual and attractive combo, bright yellowish-green crystals of Vesuvianite are scattered on a branching crystals that were previously identified as Pectolite but now seen to be at least in part Aragonite or similar Carbonate. We have just sent off a sample for analysis to confirm. Both the Vesuvianite and the Pectolite/ Aragonite are in excellent condition- no damage can be found even with 40X magnification, which is incredible for such delicate minerals. The Vesuvianites are perched so that it is easy to see they are doubly terminated.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-483
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $500
pre Tucson 2015 update

This is an intense electric pink Vesuvianite, undamaged and sparkling bright. The matrix is micro-crystallized Vesuvianite also but a light mint green color which makes a nice contrast. This color Vesuvianite is quite rare and this is a very esthetic piece with a lot of impact for the size.
Grossular
stock #17.AL-486
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.3 x 1 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $750
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear, sharp and with great luster, this is a very strong small display piece of transparent garnet. The plate is undamaged and the whole specimen is translucent to transparent. Relatively affordable for one of this quality, this piece shows well the brilliance that made the Jeffrey Mine world famous. The color is a mid orange-red with just a hint of pink hues in some lighting.
Grossular
stock #17.AL-515
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 3 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $1400
pre Tucson 2015 update

A super bright emerald-green that is far more intense than can be seen on most monitors, This is the so called "chromian" Grossular. A fine competition grade and with excellent form overall, this is far better in person. One of the most prized colors for Garnets from the Jeffrey Mine, this specimen has a nice contrast with the lighter green Grossular. The overall esthetics are very 3 dimensional making a very special piece.
Vesuviantite
stock #17.AL-491
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.9 x 1.5 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $2600
pre Tucson 2015 update

A fine miniature, bright and esthetic "V" of prismatic Vesuvianites are nicely decorated with smaller crystals with contrasting pink and purple hues. Excellent luster, the small crystals sparkle and the larger crystals have glassy smooth faces. This has the eye appeal that makes this type of Vesuviianite so desirable. In very good condition with no eye visible damage, 10X magnification shows some small chips and contacts that are clearly not distracting. Specimens of this calibre when available are usually far more expensive.
Grossular
stock #17.AL-497
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 2 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $840
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear, sharp and with top glass-like luster this has a lot of impact for its size. From the long flooded deep areas of the main pit at Jeffrey, this is the sort of Garnet that made this spot world famous. Flat contact on back (typical of these plates) and very 3 dimensional of the display side, excellent condition. These have become very hard or very expensive to get in this quality.
Vesuvianite - purple phantom
stock #17.AL-500
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.5 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An especially bright and lustrous specimen of gemmy Vesuvianite with rare phantoms of deep purple enclosed by a lighter green exterior. In very good (but not absolutely perfect)condition, what looks like damage in the photos is actually reflections inside these glass-clear crystals. There is some outside edge damage and contacts/chipping that can be best seen with magnification, so not for ultra perfectionists, but this habit with bright color phantom is very rare. This is an excellent example.
