Grossular, Diopside, Pectolite
Jeffrey mine (Jeffrey quarry; Johns-Manville mine), Asbestos, Les Sources RCM, Estrie, Quebec, Canada
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 4.4 x 3.3 cm
An excellent specimen from the Jeffrey Mine. An aesthetic cluster of very gemmy and lustrous, pastel-pink grossular garnets to 1.2 cm are nicely framed by green diopside and snow-white pectolite crystals. All of the garnets in the 3.5 cm long cluster are pristine. Pink Jeffrey garnets are not that common and this is a highly representative example of the species in nice combination.
