Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos

4.2 x 2.5 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1400
pre Tucson 2015 update

Bright green Grossular with bright lustre is the matrix for the rare blocky habit Prehnite crystals. Displays well from every side, this is simply an esthetic specimen of a rare and special combination. These were found over 20 years ago in a single zone, there were not many good ones then and now they are highly appreciated. A modern classic from the closed and much missed Jeffrey Quarry

One of the most desirable species from Bou Azzer's amazing deposits of rare Cobalt minerals is Wendwilsonite.

In fine condition, the crystals reach 6+mm which is quite large for the specie.
SOLD Grossular -gemmy
stock #SOLD 17.AL-508
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.5 x 2.9 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

Gem clear sharp and colorful, that is why Jeffrey Garnets are world class. This small miniature is that and has a nice crystal distribution. No damage in the center display area, there is only very tiny chipping on some outside edges. The crystals are so clear that internal light reflections look like damage in some photos. This is a matrix plate so the reverse side is just matrix, on the front only a small area of matrix is seen but it is the most desirable light-colored type. Larger specimens of this quality can be priced for thousands but for the collector of miniatures this is a great value.
Vesuvianite Bi-colored, Dichroic
stock #17.AL-489
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 1.7 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A classic habit Jeffrey mine Vesuvianite single crystal showing the very desirable bi-color zoning with deep purple and green. The crystal is translucent to transparent, with bright glassy luster. The purple core shows a strong dichroism with a remarkable color shift when rotated. Held in front of a light source (like a computer screen) the transparent areas change from purple to green. Now considered to be the worlds best vesuvianites, these are fast becoming impossible to find in this quality and very expensive.
Vesuvianite with Diopside
stock #17.AL-492
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4 x 3.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $2800
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer miniature with top color, great esthetics, sharp gemmy crystals and in perfect condition. This is almost all Vesuvianite with a scattering of gemmy Diopside crystals that add a nice contrast. The deep green Vesuvianites are all with the pointed terminations and have gem clarity. This quality was rare and special when the mine was working but is now almost never available. Far better in person this piece really glows in any display.
Wulfenite w. Calcite
stock #ALEC-31-100
Ahmad Abad Mine
Yazd Province, Iran
5.5 x 5.4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

Iranian Wulfenite with a distinctive look and sizable crystals in very good condition. From the little know and very old Ahmad Abad Mine, this has a nice decoration of tiny calcite scalenohedrons. Very few of this size are damage free, this on is remarkable and intact. A fine addition to any Wulfenite suite.
Malachite stalactite
stock #15.1-069
L'Etolle du Congo Mine - Lubumbashi
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
3.2 x1.6 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $60
pre Tucson 2015 update

Small but perfect, an older stalactite of bright green Malachite from the Congo. The surface on all sides is a druze of sparkling malachite crystals that makes this very different from the usual smooth malachite stalactites.
stock #ALEC-17-311
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
3.5 x 2.4 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $450
pre Tucson 2015 update

An "air clear", sharp, lustrous example of the very desirable Walworth NY Fluorite. These are famed for the clarity and overall esthetics as well as their rarity. Only a few specimens are found each year, some years there are none. This specimen was collected in the 70's by Bill Haladyz, it has the quality that has made these highly collectable. Better in person, this is classic USA Fluorite unlike from anyplace else worldwide.
