Grossular (pink) w. Diopside
stock #AX-16-576
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.9 x 2.5 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Spring update

One of the rarest colors of Grossular from Jeffrey is pink, and especially desirable is on a contrasting green Diopside. Far above average size for the main crystal at 1.2 CM and gemmy. Sharp edges and bright luster make this especially attractive. There are some contacts and chips mostly on smaller crystals but these are not easily seen. This also keeps the cost far below the usual level for a Jeffrey pink. This could be trimmed to a very fine thumbnail if desired.
Grossular - two colors
stock #18.1-128
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.3 x 2.3 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $175
Spring update

A thin plate of matrix hosts two generations of sharp, gem Grossular. The larger crystals are the well known orange hue but the smaller crystals are colorless to light pink. A nice and uncommon contrast. This is in fine condition, no damage seen at 10X magnification. Excellent glassy luster, sharp striations and quite three dimensional.
Grossular on Prehnite
stock #18.1-129
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.7 x 1.5 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $4500
Spring update

An unbelievable killer "bonsai tree"! This small thumb from the great Jeffrey mine is unique. Perfect display and undamaged all around. The Garnets are the deep emerald green color that are called "Chrome Grossular" and are gem clear. The Trunk of the tree is a single complete Prehnite crystal of the elongated prismatic habit. We have handled quite a few bright green Grossular but have never even seen such an esthetic combination. Simply extraordinary for the locality and for the specie. Top notch competition level, really a once in a lifetime thumbnail.
Grossular -very transparent crystals over diopside etc.
stock #AX-24-262
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.3 x 2.1 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $320
Spring update

A sculptural thumbnail with sharp, glass-clear crystals and deep color. It is possible to fine details in the matrix right through the Garnets. Crystals completely encrust a "thumb" of matrix on all sides. The luster is top notch, and there is no damage. With strong magnification the matrix shows several different micro crystals not identified. Fine striations on every crystal show different structures.
Diopside -large fine single crystal
stock #8.AE-077A
Orford Nickel Mine, Brompton Lake, Sherbrooke
Quebec, Canada
7.1 x 2 x 1 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring update

A very big blocky Diopside crystal that is a perfectly formed, has a good color and some translucence. Ex Steve Chamberlain, A. Edwards, and Canning collections, this is remarkably perfect, undamaged and about as clean as can be. Several faces show complex growth patters and have a nice silky luster. Choice for the specie and excellent for the locale.
Grossular- isolated gem crystals
stock #18.1-106
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2.3 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $480
Spring update

Perfect isolated gem clear garnets nested on contrasting matrix. This large thumbnail shows exactly the form and habit that is most desired from Jeffrey mine. This sort of isolation and quality have become iconic specimens in larger sizes. Those larger plates are rare and coveted, they sell for mid 6 figures. This is a scaled down model of that style of specimen, choice and esthetic but smaller and far less costly.
Vesuvianite
stock #9.1-159
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.1 x 3 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $900
Pre Holiday 2017

A colorful and very well formed Vesuvianite with a main crystal showing an unusual shortened prismatic habit. From the great heyday of the Jeffrey mine, now sadly closed forever, this location produced the worlds very best Vesuvianites in many colors and forms. The main crystal is 2 CM across diagonally and well isolated from the mass of crystals and in fine shape. Rough areas and contacts exist but are mostly on the sides and back of this specimen. Color zoning and glassy luster give this extra pop in person.
Diopside with Grossular, intense green
stock #15.1-459
Orford Nickel Mine, Brompton Lake, Sherbrooke
Quebec, Canada
6 x 5.8 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $780
Pre Holiday 2017

Bright green Diopside with emerald green micro Grossular in an esthetic cluster from the famed Orford Mines. The Orford Nickle mines produced some excellent Diopside crystals but mostly grey or pale green in color. These very bright green crystals were often called "Chromian" for the color, but now are considered to be colored by Nickle instead. No matter the source these are an especially rich green and this specimen has many well formed, sharp and esthetic prisms to 1.5 CM tall. Very attractive and quite rare.
