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.
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.

stock #17.1-AX-20-092
VAG Mine, Lowell & Eden
Vermont, United States
3.6 x 1.2 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Fall 2015

Brilliant lustrous and in fine condition, this Epidote is a deep green to brownish- golden color, translucent and very sharp. The VAG mine has been closed for years and is a classic American locale. A particularly fine example from the heyday of collecting in the 1970s.
