Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
1.8 x 1.5 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $390
Dec 2018

A small, complete, doubly terminated crystal with the most desirable intense magenta color. Damage free and a floater with no visible point of attachment, The terminations have the darker purple the mid section is a more pale greenish gray. Jeffrey Vesuvianites are by far the worlds most collectable, desirable and colorful. Since the mine closed some years ago these very rare colors are now much sought after. This was collected more than 25 years ago and is an excellent value for one of these.
Vesuvianite
stock #18.AX-509
Sierra de la Cruz, Municipio de Sierra Mojada
Coahuila, Mexico
7.3 x 6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
Dec 2018

Blocky habit Vesuvianite crystals that are doubly terminated are studding a contrasting Rhyolite matrix. From very old finds at the locality once called Lago de Jaco, now Sierra de la Cruz. The Vesuvianites are well exposed from the matrix and are nearly all bi color. This habit of Vesuvianite was collected before 1980, there have been no more in recent years.
Vesuvianite with Grossular
stock #18.1-297
Sierra de la Cruz, Municipio de Sierra Mojada
Coahuila, Mexico
7.3 x 5.7 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250
Late Summer 2018

A killer, this is a superb Vesuvianite from the long past "Lago de Jaco" finds at what is now known as Sierra de las Cruces. Better in person, this is the best specimen we have seen available and is an important piece for several reasons. Large (5 CM) translucent and complete Vesuvianites in an esthetic cluster sprinkled with Grossular crystals. The Garnets are zoned and some have a distinct purple color which is very rare. These were found in the 1955-70 era and not of any quality since. Top shelf esthetics, unusually bright luster, complex face geometry, clear edge modifications and unusually well defined crystal architecture. Several terminations have a yellow-green zoning that highlights complex growth structures and are very eyecatching.
Vesuvianite
stock #18-AX-23-143
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
8.8 x 7.2 x 6.1 (cabinet)
price: $720
Late Summer 2018

Large block of nearly pure Vesuvianite with every side showing bright crystals to 1.6 CM though most are much smaller. Some contacts and very small chipping can be found so the pricing reflects this, yet the overall display impact is strong. An excellent value for a showy Jeffrey Vesuvianite. A few additional vugs hold the rare Emerald green (so called Chromian) Vesuvianite and a few bits of purple color pop out too. Overall this is the classic mint green color, sparkling with glassy luster on crystals that are transparent to translucent.

Quebec, Canada
3.1 x 2.1 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $180

Jeffrey Mine thumbnail with a main 2.5 CM crystal standing above broken but recrystallized smaller Vesuvianites. The main crystal is in good condition as seen, the color is good and displays well. Attractive from all angles, a nice example of the habit from this prolific but closed locality.
Vesuvianite- Bicolor gem crystal

Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada

Spring update

A superb thumbnail crystal that has deep purple-red terminations on a yellow green prism. The color and luster ar top notch and this shows why the Vesuvianites of Jeffrey quarry are so treasured. Such colors simply have never been found anyplace else and even at Jeffrey, this color combination was very rare. A choice addition for a Jeffrey suite or any fine thumbnail collection. No damage and better in person.
Vesuvianite
stock #9.1-W159
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.1 x 3 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $900
Pre Holiday 2017

A colorful and very well formed Vesuvianite with a main crystal showing an unusual shortened prismatic habit. From the great heyday of the Jeffrey mine, now sadly closed forever, this location produced the worlds very best Vesuvianites in many colors and forms. The main crystal is 2 CM across diagonally and well isolated from the mass of crystals and in fine shape. Rough areas and contacts exist but are mostly on the sides and back of this specimen. Color zoning and glassy luster give this extra pop in person.
Vesuvianite- single Crystal
stock #17.1-AX-840
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.2 x 1.1 x 1.0 CM (miniature)
price: $890
Pre Holiday 2017

The Vesuvianites that came out of the Jeffrey Mine are the most colorful and desirable in the world. This crystal has a two tone green color, gem clear areas and a sharp, perfect termination. Close examination shows what may be parallel growth or complex twinning. Overall a fine condition, undamaged prism with excellent color and bright luster. Found in 2002. Relatively affordable for this level of quality. Since the mine closed, these are fast becoming rare and very expensive when available.
