ID: CC19263
A stunningly aesthetic group of limey-apple-green Vesuvianite crystals with gemmy Diopside crystals richly scattered over their terminations from Jeffrey mine at Asbestos in Qu├ębec. Three spectacular Vesuvianite crystals dominate the front of the specimen, each measuring to almost 5 cm with sharp pyramidal terminations. Their faces are glassy and transparent, revealing a translucent to opaque crazed interior.  Many small well-terminated Vesuvianite crystals of the same colour surround the major crystals and sit on a granular matrix of green and mauve Vesuvianite,  Richly scattered over the terminations are colourless gemmy, flat tabular Diopside crystals which just add to this already beautiful specimen.
