This small miniature Vesuvianite from Jeffrey mine at Asbestos in Québec, Canada, is a stunning example of the violet form from this most famous of localities.  This off-matrix specimen is composed entirely of intergrown lustrous Vesuvianite crystals of the most intense blackberry-violet, a colour regarded very highly amongst collectors.  The largest crystal is 1.3 cm long and many are about 1 cm.  The larger crystals are translucent, but as they diminish in size they become more transparent, with some becoming gemmy.  A choice lilac Vesuvianite from Jeffrey mine.
