stock #17.AL-490
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada

price: $1950
pre Tucson 2015 update

A killer quality gem clear Diopside cluster with a light sherry color is perched on a contrasting matrix of white Diopside and bright green Vesuvianite. In outstanding condition this has fine eyecatching esthetics, showing the tabular crystals in a perfect stack. Good Diopside from this locale is sought after, these are very uncommon in such quality and condition as they are fragile. An excellent addition to any suite from Jeffrey Mine and a a fine Diopside from anyplace
SOLD Vesuvianite -exceptional color
stock #SOLD 17.AL-482
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.2 x 1.9 x 1.1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

Rare color and perfect form making this a serious competition grade thumbnail. Even more rare, no damage at 30X magnification can be found. This deep violet to pink purple zoned crystal cluster has great luster and stands out in a display . This is the sort of color and quality that has made the Jeffrey mine a world class locale. This level of quality is rarely available and much sought after.
Vesuvianite
stock #17.AL-493
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
2.9 x 2.2 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $650
pre Tucson 2015 update

A really attractive piece with an unusual composition. A small "mountain" of tiny Vesuvianite crystals (mixed green, purple and pink) are the base for a single gem clear crystal jutting out of the summit. A bright, high luster piece that is unlike any other we have seen. In very good condition, a few crystals show some breaks that recrystallized. Micro level chips exist that are not seen without magnification. The summit crystal is especially clear and perfect. This is the kind of specimen that helped make this closed mine a world classic.
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.
Liddicoatite
stock #ALEC-30-029
Andrembesoa Commune
Betafo Dist - Vakinankaratra Rgn -Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
4.5 x 1.8 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1600
pre Tucson 2015 update

An older Madagascar Liddicoatite, this is a fine gemmy clear zoned crystal with exceptional luster. No damage at all, the crystal shows excellent dichroism, the color shift goes between a green hue and yellow. Better in person the color zoning is quite unusual too.
Elbaite ex Herb Obodda collection
stock #ALEC-30-020
Mawi Pegmatite
Nuristan, Afghanistan
3.8 x .7 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $1200
pre Tucson 2015 update

Superb. A sharp, gem clear multi-colored Tourmaline crystal in perfect condition from the early finds in Afganistan. Not much else to say, the photos show it well. This quality is now very rare and hard to find at any price. The central green zone is a rich vivid color, not like the pastel hue that was typical from later finds in Paprock. Far better in person.
Elbaite v. Indicolite
stock #ALEC-30-018
Santa Rosa Mine, Itambacuri
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.2 x 1.1 x .9 (miniature)
price: $700
pre Tucson 2015 update

A gemmy, bright blue Santa Rosa Tourmaline with a hue not often available. Not a perfect specimen but still very displayable, the main termination and main crystal is complete, undamaged but with a little matrix adhering, the small side crystals have damage that can be seen with careful examination. That said it has an uncommon color and luster with very good clarity that is really nice.
Vesuvianite with Aragonite and possible 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 anlaysis 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.
