Grossular, Diopside
Jeffrey mine (Jeffrey quarry; Johns-Manville mine), Asbestos, Les Sources RCM, Estrie, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.5 x 1.9 cm
There has been a scramble to scoop up any Jeffrey Mine pieces remaining on the market since the closing of the mine. What I like about this specimen is not just the flashing, gemmy grossulars (to 0.8 cm), but the nice mix of green diopside crystals scattered amongst them. 5 x 4.5 x 1.9 cm
