Grossular (Var: Chromian Grossular), Diopside
Jeffrey mine (Jeffrey quarry; Johns-Manville mine), Asbestos, Les Sources RCM, Estrie, Quebec, Canada
Cabinet, 10.2 x 5.2 x 2.8 cm
These crystals, despite their size, are still some of the darkest, richest green Chromium-bearing Grossular crystals I've seen from any locality. There are literally dozens upon dozens of very small, bright, lustrous, dodecahedral neon green Chrome Grossulars with tan-colored, bladed Diopside crystals on matrix. A very attractive piece from this classic, and now defunct world locality.
