Epidote/ Clinozoisite classic locale
stock #18-AX-20-093
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.7 x 1 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $120


A single, sharp terminated crystal of Epidote. At this locale these are often found to be zoned with Clinozoisite but usually not more than 50% hence the Epidote label. From the long closed now classic locale of the VAG mine in Northern Vermont, USA. A fine clean translucent to transparent crystal in fine shape from the Rodingite zone famed for world class Garnets. Lustrous, undamaged and with distinctive striations, a choice little classic Northeastern US piece.
Quartz - Mt Tabor style tabular, gemmy
stock #19.1-368
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
2.3 x 1.3 x .7 (thumbnail)
price: $110


Small, perfect, gem clear, brilliantly lustrous tabular habit Quartz. From the recently described (May-June 2019 Rocks and Minerals magazine) Devils Den locality. These alpine style Quartz are not often available and are not well known outside the Northeastern USA. An excellent thumbnail example from this location and an attractive Quartz from anyplace. In fine condition as seen.
Quartz -"Mt Tabor type"
stock #19.1-366
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
3.2 x 2.2 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $130


Gem clear, doubly terminated Quartz from Devils Den that has a slight faden line, and several terminations in a line that share the same tabular prism faces. Some of this sort have been called "Mt Tabor Twins" though these are likely not a unique twin law but are quite distinctive and very unusual. The June 2019 Rocks and Minerals article describes the locality well and these alpine style USA Quartz are not often available on the market.
Quartz- faden, USA locality
stock #19.1-365
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
3.8 x 3 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $85


The faden Quartz from the long known locality of Devils Den, Mt Tabor, Vermont is rarely seen. This site was recently described in the June, 2019 issue of Rocks and Minerals, and illustrates several unusual habits of Alpine style Quartz not often seen in the USA. This tabular transparent Quartz crystal shows a very distinct faden string as well as offset growth structures and recrystallized breaks. Some chipping exists at one end but the rest is undamaged. A nice gemmy transparent Faden from the USA not often available.
Grossular with Diopside
stock #18.1-191
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.
Epidote/ Clinozoisite on Calcite
stock #17.1-820
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.8 x 2.8 x 2.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $90
Spring update

Sharp translucent Epidote/ Clinozoisite crystals to 2.1 CM well exposed from Calcite matrix. The main crystals are damage free, well terminated and have very good luster. C nice example from a classic locale, not many matrix specimens of Epidote were recovered. Could trim to thumbnail size if desired.
SOLD Grossular on Diopside - classic USA locale
stock #SOLD 16.1-539
Belvidere Mountain, Belvidere/ Eden Mills Quarries, Lowel and Eden, Lamo
Vermont, United States
5.5 x 4.2 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Spring update

A classic style Belvidere mountain (Eden Mills) Garnet on Diopside and Calcite matrix. The main crystal is 1 cm across and sharp, glassy and a fine red-orange color. This long closed location is legendary for these Grossular which are now quite scarce in good quality piece. A few smaller Grossular and some remains of damaged crystals are also on the matrix, but the primary visual feature is the well exposed main crystal. Gemmy and choice.
Epidote/Clinozoisite on Calcite scalenohedral
stock #17.1-AX-20-086
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.5 x 1.9 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Fall 2015

From what is commonly called Eden Mills, this is a very unusual combination. A single scalenohedron of Calcite hosts a lustrous Epidote crystal and sprays of clear Natrolite crystals as well. In good condition overall, the Epidote is broken on one end but fine otherwise, good magnifications reveals chipping on the Natrolites but is not naked-eye visible.
