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 microcrystalized 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.
Cerussite on Barite
stock #13.1-381
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province,
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.9 x 3 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $120
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very nice example of Cerussite on contrasting Barite from Mibladen. No damage, the sharp, gemmy Cerussite (double terminated) is well perched on the orange Barite. This locality has provided many good Cerussites, this one is much better than average and a very good value.
SOLD Vesuvianite
stock #SOLD 17.AL-495
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 1.5 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $0
pre Tucson 2015 update

A esthetic tower of stacked bi-colored Vesuvianite crystals that is absolutely pristine and sparkling. A careful exam at 20X magnification show not the smallest chip or contact, a very rare thing indeed! The green to pink/purple hues are well presented and the overall composition a piece of sculptural art. Small but choice.
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.
Kammererite with Zaratite
stock #13.1-251
Kop Krom Mine, Kop Daglari
East Anatolia, Turkey
5.5 x 3.6 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense color and in excellent condition, a rich specimen of well crystallized Kammererite. The Kop Krom mine has produced by far the best examples of this rare Chrome Clinochlore, this piece also has a druze of tiny Zaratite crystals best seen under magnification. The Kammererite crystals on this piece are not the typical plates or druse, they are sharp, prismatic and well exposed on the matrix. Hard to find in this quality.
Fluorapatite (Apatite CaF)- classic locale
stock #14.1-078
Nevel Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
10.9 x 7.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
pre Tucson 2015 update

A large cabinet sized matrix of quartz and mixed pegmatite that hosts a dense mass of interlocked purple Apatite crystals. From the famed Nevel Quarry in Maine that is more famed for fine Tourmalines. The sharp and glassy crystals reach over 9mm but most are about 5-6 in size. The color is a good medium purple that is lighter than from the nearby Pulsifer Quarry. Specimens of this size and quality are very rare from the Nevel and this one also has a few tiny unidentified Phosphate crystals as well. Minor bruises are seen with magnification and some cracks are noted in the matrix yet the naked eye display is excellent.
